Principles of Strength and Conditioning in Injury Rehabilitation

This course develops a fundamental understanding of strength and conditioning training principles to be applied into injury rehabilitation. The course consists of both theory and practical based sessions including case studies and program design. Cape Town 4 to 5 September 2021

Tactical Periodisation - Designing Training from your Game Model

In this module, we will look at how to teach a game model to players through training. At the end of the module you will understand how to create a training session based on your game model. This short e-learning course will get you started on implementing your own game model for your team. https://www.rugbycoachweekly.net/courses/turn-your-game-model-into-a-training-session/

Tactical Periodisation - Designing a Game Model

The best place to start implementing tactical periodisation is developing an effective game model. A game model is a way of training and playing to allow your team to achieve their potential. This short e-learning course will get you started on developing your own game model for your team. https://www.rugbycoachweekly.net/courses/play-to-your-potential-with-a-game-model/

Agile Approaches to Training Prescription

The prescription of physical training is a challenging task because human performance is affected by a range of interrelated factors. Navigating this complex space is best achieved through an agile planning approach where training prescription is adjusted in response to adaptation and fatigue. This presentation discusses planning frameworks that allow for responsive training prescription. Topic to be covered include iterative planning cycles, autoregulation, non-linear periodisation, velocity based training and the use of GPS.

How to Establish an Interdisciplinary Team

In our guide, The Value of Interdisciplinary Thinking, Strength and Conditioning Coach Jason Tee reminded us that coaching is complex, and to effectively navigate and maximise it, we need to draw from a wide range of areas of knowledge and expertise. Assembling an interdisciplinary team (IDT), a collection of individuals with specialisms in different areas of participant development, is one way to effectively navigate this. This article explores how to go about setting up an effective interdisciplinary team

The value of interdisciplinary thinking

A coach needs to be responsive to the needs of the people they are coaching. As everyone is different and all their needs are unique, you need to draw on different areas of knowledge and experience to best support the individual in front of you.

Autoregulation: The solution to the rehab programming puzzle

Training prescription is a delicate balancing act of tissue-loading. Overload a client, and they may suffer setbacks in the form of pain, swelling, and tissue damage. But, conversely, underloading will affect the development of the physical capacities necessary for performance in their sport. One plausible solution to the training prescription problems described above is the concept of autoregulation. Autoregulation is a training periodization approach that aims to adjust training prescription to the athlete’s daily capabilities
