*Sports periodization refers to a training process that specifically prepares a competitor to compete at the highest capacity possible for his or her particular sport and position.  It takes into consideration the specific needs of the athlete such as:

  • Coordinated movement skills needed (Both gross and fine)
  • Needed strengths
  • Dominate energy system used
  • Length and cycles of competitive event
  • Intensity levels needed to dominate the competition

Once the athlete’s needs are assessed, a training protocol is designed for maximum efficiency where all the needs are met, overtraining is minimized, and optimum competitive performance is inevitable.
