Training Multi-Sport Athletes: Part II
In the last article about handling multi-sport athletes in high school, we discussed our reasons behind the holistic training approach as opposed to sport-specific training. For one, it makes administrative and logistics tasks for coaches far easier – saving time and maximizing results. On top of this, high school athletes are NOT specialists, and thus have a very broad physical requirement for competitive success. Frankly, we would argue that training any athlete is a more universal task than “sport-specific” training can accomplish. Either way, though, building an efficient training program for competitive multi-sport athletes must take into account a wide array of needs. We must build a universal approach that benefits all athletes, no matter their field of competition. Here at PLT4M, we break these demands down into 4 basic pillars of training.
