Assignment 1 Week 4
This assignment is to help you develop your final course project. For your course project, you will be training a specific athlete. So, for this assignment, please begin the initial steps toward training this athlete.
You will write a short paper (2-5 pages) that provides details about the athlete you will be training.
This is the same athlete that you will be using for additional assignments in this class.
Please include things such as:
position played (if applicable)
level and any other important information (periodization, your plan/model).
Please determine which pre-tests you would have this athlete perform before developing this program for him/her.
When selecting these tests/Assessments, make sure that you are assessing the information you will need to be able to appropriately design a training program for them.
For example, do not perform the vertical jump if this does not help you develop a program. In other words, do not do testing just to do testing, make sure it is for a reason. Inasmuch, please be sure to state why you selected each test for this athlete and support this rationale with appropriate peer-reviewed research.
