DSC13 – Mod 3 Endurance Development for Sport

 Module Overview

This module is designed to present a fresh approach to coaching endurance or stamina training for coaches who are engaged in preparing and conditioning individuals and teams for sports. The most basic premise is that endurance training for field
and court sports is completely different to that required by the long distance athlete, swimmer or cyclist. Field and court sports are not continuous stamina games or competition; they are games of skill but carried out in a start-stop-start fashion.

Module Summary

During this module we will try to explain the difference between endurance training for a continuous sport and for a sport that requires the repetition of many different activities, movement patterns, and skills across a wide range of speeds.

Initially we will examine how the body provides energy for exercise as well as introducing the learner to the Three Energy Systems and how they work together to provide athletes or players with energy to train for and compete in their sports. As well  as examining the importance of the energy systems and the part they play in fitness development for sport, we also look at the factors that limit performance in endurance.

One of the most important topics of this modules presents, examines and discusses the relevance of and importance of the various types of endurance training.

The module also examines how the principles of training (module 1) are applied to developing endurance for a range of sports and ends by presenting a topic entitled “endurance and field and court sports” where the application of endurance training is best applied to a range of sports which required the ability to continue with irregular bouts of intermittent physical activity.

This course presents a modern approach to endurance training. Each topic is presented in an exciting and thorough way to ensure that a clear understanding of the subject matter is delivered.
