First let me say that we feel defense is the key and essence to winning football. I would like to share our thoughts on how we prepare our defensive team during game week. Daily Schedule: Defensive Game Week Sunday night we try to review our opponent’s film.
I encourage players to initiate coach-player conferences with me as I will with them. I try to help players learn to communicate with teammates, coaches, teachers, parents, and members of the community. Assistant Coaches’ Roles I view my coaching staff as a team, just as the players are a team.
In the past several years, sales of dietary supplements have experienced explosive growth, surpassing $17 billion in sales a year and climbing. Several years ago, for example, I would recommend that people take 400 IUs of vitamin E supplements, a fairly standard dosage. Beyond vitamin and mineral supplements, there is another class of nutrients called nonessential supplements.
I’d like to emphasize that each runner and coach should abandon the “copy the current champion” approach to training and instead challenge the runner’s own body with training based on scientific principles. When weekly training logs of champion runners are made public, what you usually see is a particularly great week of training, not a typical week in the runner’s training period. Or you might see a week during the strenuous phase of training, which is not at all the same as a week during ...
The motivation to run well in cross country comes from the athlete as an individual, from the team as a group, and from the coach as a leader. My basic message in talks to coaches is, if you aren’t motivated, how can you expect your runners to be? You coaches know you’ve succeeded as a motivator when every runner on your team does not want to lose for fear of hurting your feelings.
Skipping meals will contribute to eating in excess later in the day and may make you feel light-headed around midmorning. If you choose to eat something with a high sugar content, also try to eat something nutritious such as a glass of milk. People love to encourage pregnant women to eat everything they themselves want but know they should not eat.
If you have a goal (winning a particular tournament, shooting a personal best score, shooting a FITA round with all arrows scoring), your practice sessions should help you achieve it. Practice sessions, then, break down into three types--form practice, equipment setup and tuning, and tournament preparation. Your practice plan needs to include all of the elements of successful shooting--physical training, mental training, equipment preparation, and competition.
Rather than just hitting the ball back and forth in your next practice, ask your practice partner to hit the ball away from you. In all forms of practice, especially match practice, it angers me to see one of our pros drilling with no regard to where the ball is going or what the student should be doing next. Remember, when practicing match play it’s not the quantity of practice that matters, it’s the quality.
PREPARATION PHASE The start of your training year, or early season, begins with your base training or preparation phase. This means long, slow riding, keeping your heart rate down, riding on road bikes, group rides, building your endurance, training your diet, practicing your pedal stroke by doing some drill work, and cross training. Taking Long Slow Rides The true purpose of the long slow rides (LSR) is to increase your body’s ability to tolerate sitting on the bike as well as to increase ...
One of the key inspirations for the development of a junkyard sport is playing in the “wrong” environment with the “wrong” equipment. Trying to play soccer in a gym is just like trying to play baseball in the street. This is the evolution of the game Beach-Basket Soccer, located on page 36. Read more from Junkyard Sports.
