Tristan Tillette of Elite Sports Performance answers MyCoachOnline's questions about Performance Programs. Tillette discusses everything how age impacts the development of a program to how programs may vary between boys and girls. A great series for the parents of young athletes.
This series begins with general discussion regarding the age at which an athlete should begin a performance program. The discussion continues to include how a program is individualized with age being only one factor. The primary goal is injury-risk reduction.
What are realistic expectations for a performance program? Can a performance program make my child a better athlete? How do you make a performance program fun for kids? Is recovery time really important? Those are the questions discussed in this video segment.
Keeping an athlete's attention during training is an important part of a good enhancement program. Having the right equipment is necessary also. But, do you have to spend a lot of money to have a lot of high-end equipment to train? That's part of the discussion here. We end with discussion of differences in training between boys and girls.
