Tips For Training For Team Sports

  • What Training is Best For Which Sport? Observing teams of many disciplines, it may be difficult to ascertain which sport they are training for, especially that many coaches put them through drills that do not appear directly related to the skills required by participants of that particular sport.

  • Training Specificity. The key to improving your performance is to practice things that make you better. Logic dictates that a team should train focussing on skills related to their game, ideally on a surface that replicates that of a normal game. Look at teams focussing on drills related to the skills required by their sport, and you’re likely to see a team succeeding at their sport.

  • Is Stretching a Waste of Time? Definitely not! Stretching is crucial to help avoid injury. An injury-free team is more likely to be a successful team. Stretching between sets also helps clear lactic acid from tired muscles.

  • Work on Your Skills. Once warmed up and stretched, focus on high skill work related to the specific requirements of team members. A universal training programme for the whole team would largely be a waste of time. Also aim to train in intervals that simulate those of a normal game for added benefit.

  • Aim of Training Players For Team Sports. The bottom line is that training should prepare athletes for real game situations. Conditioning should be focussed on not only performing to their best, but getting through the game with minimal injuries. If fancy and irrelevant movements are being applied to players’ training, chances are, the time, energy and effort involved in training is being wasted.
