Planning and Program Management for Coaches (EDPN5016)


The art of coaching is understanding the scientific data and applying it. This analysis process relies heavily on the coach's experience and knowledge of the sport and their athletes. How effectively coaching sessions are planned and implemented influences the outcomes of coaching programs. This unit will critically examine the processes, models, research findings and strategies relating to periodisation, concurrent training, specific training sessions and goal setting. In this approach sport science and sport specific training and competition activities will be fully integrated and sequenced to provide for optimum performance.
