Dryland Training for Swimmers of All Ages. – A Four Hour Course.
This course is designed to help you develop a dryland program for your team, regardless of age, experience and equipment available.
Three chapters fully develop the place of dryland training in all programs: from young age group/novice athletes to elite athletes.
One chapter develops the idea of how we relate what we do on dryland to faster swimming in the water.
One chapter develops a “cookbook” approach to dryland. If you lack the time to spend on extensive dryland development and still want to be able to do some dryland training.
Five chapters develop specific routines in different modalities, such as stretch cords, medicine balls, plyometric balls, hand-weight exercises, and exercises with little-to-no equipment needed.
Whether you coach Age Group or Senior swimmers, this Course is your primer on: what to do, when and how to do it, and what it takes to effectively improve the athleticism of your athletes.
How to Write Workouts for Age Group Swimmers.
Age group swim teams should get better by plan – not by accident (or new people moving into town or simply growing 2 inches over the weekend.) This popular course presents a practical process for creating a season training plan based on goals. The overall emphasis is that age group workouts should be written according to objectives, rather than yardage – although, yardage is important to record and evaluate. Age Group swimmers are not just little seniors and should have workouts written to their needs. Writing workouts requires a different approach and some different ideas that may upset your current mode of thinking. (That’s a good thing!) Topics include goal setting for results, identifying the components (or objectives) of workouts, setting priorities, delineating cycles (called “points of focus”), creating a workout model, constructing individual workouts, making, managing and running multiple groups, and over an hour on tips for running great workouts. We will develop a working season training plan for an age group team during the class. The principles of the course can be applied easily to novice, age group and high school programs. Taught by Guy Edson who is coaching an age group team every day. A 70 page book plus a 50 page handouts/worksheets are included.
