EasyPDHPE > Improving Performance > What are the planning considerations for improving performance?

Students learn about:

Students learn to:

  • describe the specific considerations of planning for performance in events/competitions. How would this planning differ for elite athletes and recreational/amateur participants?
  • develop and justify a periodisation chart of the fitness and skill-specific requirements of a particular sport.
  • examine different methods of structuring training sessions
  • design and implement a training session for a specific event. Evaluate the session by considering questions such as:
    • did the activities match the abilities of the group?
    • what was the reaction of the group?
    • how could the session be modified?
  • analyse overtraining by considering questions such as:
    • how much training is too much?
    • how do you identify an overtrained athlete?
    • what do you do if you identify an overtrained athlete?
    • how can overtraining be avoided?
