More Training Do’s and Don’ts

  • Know your strength and weaknesses as a coach. Accentuate your strengths and minimize your weaknesses.
  • Define yourself do not let others define you.
  • Design training sessions that foster and encourage discovery. Do not create robots or athletes completely dependent on the coach.
  • Do not try to reinvent the wheel, chances are that if you do your homework someone has done something similar before and you can build on that.
  • Never lose sight of the fact that training is a means to an end, not an end in itself. Training is preparing to compete.
  • In season training is essential. To train extensively in preparation and not train in-season can be worse than no training at all.
  • You are never ready, put it on the line. How else do you know where you are? Test yourself. Without risk there is no reward.
