Workshop 2 – DEVELOPING PROCESSES IN FOOTBALL
What can organisations do to simplify, resource and implement to enhance a co-operative interdisciplinary delivery to athletes?
This workshop is designed to explore various strategies to develop the day to day planning, delivery and review of our training processes and thereby improve the quality of support they provide to the players. Sometimes this can simply be some evidence based implementation of interventions or anecdotal knowledge on a specific case study.
There is a saying that “ive always done it this way” is the most dangerous thought process a practitioner / department can display so hopefully by exploring different options on monitoring and assessments it may serve as a vehicle to help refine current ways of working in the clubs for the better. With this it is always nice to get a “well done” and this maybe in the form of external validation from another club utilisng similar or identical processes, which goes a long way in maintaining confidence in our work in such a volatile industry.
Finally, it is also good to remember that there is a time and a place for everything and that sometimes a unique process maybe the best course of action at one specific moment in the season, with one specific player only. It may also be harder to implement than other easier processes but doing the right thing is not always the easiest.
