TRAINING PLAN ASSIGNMENT:
The hands-on training plan assignment will be conducted in small groups (approximately four-six per group). Attached is the spreadsheet template for building four weekly training plans. One weekly plan for the spring, one weekly plan for the summer, one weekly plan for the fall and one for the winter. The goal is to create weekly training plans that use progression and periodization strategies, so the previous plan builds towards the next. Each weekly plan will include one training session that outlines how you would incorporate technical and tactical training strategies directly within the training session. Each of you will submit an individual plan to me via email, however, you will collaborate with your coaching group to create one overall group plan and then individually adjust training sessions of your choosing. In short, this is exactly how our national team or regional staff works with the ski community when generating a national or regional camp training plan. There is a general plan created and each athlete comes to camp with an individual plan that incorporates approximately 80-90% of the general plan.
