What can I learn in Coach Andrea’s Athletic Development Training Program?
The Athletic Development Training Program introduces components of physical performance such as strength, speed, power, and fitness. The key focus of this program is development. Coach Andrea’s program is based on the progressive Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) Model. This model describes the aspects of athletic development that are maximized at specific ages and stages based on physical, emotional, and social development.
In the Athletic Development Training Program, athletes will:
- Engage in dynamic warm-ups that improve mechanics, mobility, and flexibility
- Perform injury prevention exercises
- Learn about muscles and movements while exploring and creating proper athletic mechanics
- Progress through exercises and drills as their abilities and confidence improve
- Develop positive habits such as hydration and nutrition for each game day or practice
- Finish with cool down exercises designed to improve flexibility and recovery that will set good, lifelong fitness habits
How can I best prepare for my first training session?
In the first session, Coach Andrea will provide a general physical assessment of mobility, flexibility, and strength. She will determine recommendations for a targeted and customized training plan as part of the Initial Screen and Consultation private session. The first session is about establishing a strong coach-to-athlete relationship, so you are encouraged to share short and long term athletic goals with Coach Andrea so your training can be an effective and collaborative effort.
