Webinar replay: Principles of training design

Webinars56 Min Watch

Create quality trainings for athlete learning, development and performance

In this webinar replay, we hear from youth sport experts, Dave Wright and Dan Cooke, on effective session design in team sports or invasion games.

Dave and Dan share a few of their favourite frameworks that that have helped them to become better at planning and designing effective trainings for young people (across a variety of age groups and contexts).

Key topics they dive into include:

  • The 3Rs – Realism, relevance and repetition and the trade offs each of these may present
  • The Practice Spectrum and how coaches can move up and down this depending on their context
  • Advice on how to apply this thinking in different contexts (age group, motivation of players)
  • Practice design checklist so you can optimise your session design
  • Representative design – Does it look like the game?

Watch to leave with practical tips on how to design high-quality training sessions to encourage better decision-making, play and athlete outcomes for your athletes.
