REMINDER:  Dry-land Training

Athletes at the U14 level and up are considered to be in the “Train to Train” phase of the Long Term Athlete Development model.  This is a stage in their development where they are ready to consolidate their basic sport-specific skills and tactics and is a major fitness development stage.  Therefore some form of a year round dry-land training program should be incorporated into your athlete’s schedule.  Fitness testing should be part of this program to assess the athlete’s development and progress.
