Advanced Concepts of Training Week – In-Season Training
Learn how to prepare and peak for tournaments
Advanced Concepts of Training – learn how to train in-season.
Keeping with Elm City Squash’s tradition of focusing on how to train for squash, we are pleased to announce a week of training which focuses on how to train during season to ensure that you peak at the right time. This week is perfect preparation for players looking play in the European tournaments. A large portion of the week is spent working on sharpening games and becoming better tactical players. State of the art video analysis helps players grasp technical and tactical concepts faster.
Players will receive in depth education on how to formulate training plans. This camp is suited to elite level players who are interested in taking their games to a new level by learning about how to train efficiently and effectively. By the end of the week campers will understand how to construct a period of training during season that includes peaking for important tournaments.
Players leave with a generalized training plan that they will bring home and can train from during their next season. They will understand that basic principles behind training cycles and what kind of exercise to be doing at what point of the year. Upgrading to the personalized package will allow players to receive individualized training plans and take home in-depth video analysis beyond what is offered to regular campers.
