Creating An Athletic Legacy - Youth Physical Development Strategies
Nick Grantham and Neil Parsley
This 1-Day expands on the popular series of evening workshops deliverd in 2015 and deals with the realities of working with young athletes. For 2016 Nick has teamed up with Neil Parsley to share with you insights based on their combined experience working in performance sport. They have developed athletic curriculums for a wide range of sports, trained youth athletes who have gone on to deliver world class performances as senior athletes, and they have also been there to pick up the pieces when faced with athletes who have been overplayed or overtrained.
Drawing upon leading up-to-date research, Nick and Neil will take you through his evidence-based approach to the physical preparation of children and young athletes and show you how to apply these concepts in the real world using practical movement and gym based training. There will be a strong emphasis on learning by doing and Nick and Neil will bring the theoretical concepts to life during a range of hands on practical sessions throughout the day.
In this 1-day workshop Nick and Neil will explore key topics in strength and conditioning, including:
- Myths and misconceptions of physical preparation and the youth athlete
- Planning and periodisation considerstions for youth athletes
- Practical introduction to physical preparation strategies for youth athletes including:
- Strength, power and plyometrics
- Speed and agility
- Metabolic conditioning
- Mobility and flexibility
- Injury reduction
This is an essential workshop for all students of strength and conditioning or paediatric exercise science, as well as any coach or trainer working with children and young people.
This workshop has proven popular in 2015 and spaces are limited to just 26 delegates to optimise the learning environment...book now to avoid disapointment.
