Sports Performance Workshop: Willand
Sporting success starts here:
This workshop is designed for Secondary school pupils who want answers to the following questions:
- How can I balance my busy sport and school schedules?
- How much sleep should I be getting?
- What is the best diet for my sport?
- How can I get faster?
The Day will include:
- Agility: up, down, 360 degrees, decision making. How to get beat your opponents.
- Sports Nutrition: Making your own recovery snacks (practical), the optimal lunch box
- Planning for 2018: what to fit in, what to take out, making the most of limited time.
- Sleep: How much, common myths about bed times, quality versus quantity.
The day is open to athletes from all sports and of all playing levels. The only criteria are that the player must be at Secondary school (including 6th form).
Wednesday 2nd January 0900-1300
This Support Day is part of the Excelsior Athletic Development Club
Head coach and owner James Marshall is the author of “Training Young Athletes” and an expert on long term athlete development.
He set up the Athletic Development Club to help young people from all backgrounds gain access to expert advice, locally.
He is using his experience of coaching Olympians, Paralympians and International competitors with local children. He is designing the sessions so that the club members are set up for long term success, rather than short term impact and risking injury, burnout and disillusionment with sport.
James was on the England Senior Karate squad for 3 years, and competed in European and World Championships.
