Training Planning Series – The Preseason in Teamsports


Preparation is everything!

In the preseason, as a coach, you only have a few weeks to prepare your athletes for the competition phase, regardless of the state of the athletes after the break. For this reason, this phase is often called the rebuilding period. Thus, the trainer should enable the players in this time segment to be prepared for competitions throughout the season and to be able to contest them with high performance.

Since many factors are essential for a high performance of the athlete in team sports, be it strength, power, repeated-sprint ability, endurance, speed, acceleration and deceleration or sport-specific skills, to name just a few, you will hardly be able to achieve significant results without an optimal training strategy. But how do top coaches plan the preseason to be able to master these challenges? Which aspects do they particularly value here? And does science give us indicators to watch out for?

Our new ONLINETALK format offers you insights into this topic from both the scientific and the practical side. World class sports scientists and coaches are talking about the current level of knowledge in science, the practical usability in everyday training, the reliability of the method or system, the alternatives and future expectations. They will share their expertise and personal experience with you. 

The ONLINETALK splits up in three 90-minute slots and a 60-minute Q&A session with all three speakers. You can ask questions during the whole talk and we are looking forward to some awesome discussions between the experts at the end.
