  • Method A: Prolonged Effort
    • As children move into their teens their aerobic capacity decreases.
    • There is a need to develop this in a FUN way using the ball where possible
  • Activity
    • Volume: build from a suitable base 1400m to 2500m using pitch markings (20, 30 & 50m sprints)
    • Intensity: Medium pace to fast running
    • Type: Running with or without the ball individually and in groups of two or more
    • Time: for approximately 25 – 30 minutes twice a week in pre season.

  • Game related and skills based activities can raise the heart rate into the training zone.
  • To keep the heart rate in or close to the training zone it is necessary to have active rest between activities.
  • The game related activity (7v7) shows that the heart rate is at 86% of maximum for about 20 minutes.
  • Increasing the numbers (11 v 11) reduced the heart rate to 83% maximum but still in the training zone.

Conclusion:
  • Schools, Clubs and County Boards must work in unison and not separately as is the case at present
  • Implications for all future coaches – LTPD Training etc.
  • Coaches of the future will be central to the sporting ambitions of all players
  • The best coaches must be selected to coach the appropriate programmes at the right stage i.e. LTPDP must be aliened to our coaching courses
  • Most players now need remedial action to improve their performance because of a lack of proper coaching at the appropriate stage

The most talented performers are not always being identified or identified too early
  • Over-competing and under-training – not reaching potential by peaking too early
  • Damage done between age 6-12 cannot be fully corrected
  • Big drop out if children lack these fundamental skills
  • Age appropriate competition with emphasis on development not winning

Motto: Children First Winning Second
