A truly integrated approach to Athlete Development: A case study from USTA Player Development, Team USA Best Practices

The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of what a potential journey looks like for an athlete following the USTA Player Development Teaching and Coaching Philosophy.
Tennis is the sport I work in; however, this journey considers outcomes in various studies that have been conducted over the past 40+ years across many disciplines. It pinpoints key information in how we set up our environments and how children learn to become champions with modern best practices.

We will reflect what a truly integrated, wholistic approach to athlete development means and looks like, discussing barriers and constraints and how to overcome them to get to a truly integrated program that is person-first, athlete-centered. Lastly but certainly not least, it is important to discuss how we shape a child’s mind through developmentally appropriate teaching and training that lead to healthy outcomes in a performance world.

1. What does the Journey look like?

b. WHAT KIDS NEED – Coach / Parent
c. WHERE KIDS GET IN – Environment
d. HOW KIDS LEARN – Positive Pedagogy, Teaching and Coaching.

2. Diving more into the Development. Planning an athlete’s program.

a. Screening and Testing
b. Identify individual exercises that address physical deficiencies
c. Decide on integration of exercises that develop the athlete in the whole program
d. Deliver a brain-based approach through positive pedagogy, challenging decision-making, problem-solving and sparking creativity.

Practical Component:

A demonstration of incorporating Athletic Development and foundational strength principles during the warm-up following the philosophy of:

Talk Overview  A targeted approach to speed development in young athletes

Resisted sled training (RST) is a commonly used method of sprint specific training, however there is a lack of uniformity on training guidelines and best practice. RST can be used as a mode of horizontal strength training to compliment a well-rounded training program to improve speed. This presentation is aimed at providing valuable practical insight from evidence-based research on young athletes to better equip coaches to assess, prescribe and coach RST to enhance speed. Of particular interest to practitioners dealing with young athletes will be the interaction of maturation and training competence on the phase of targeted sprint adaptation.

Speakers – Saturday 27th July

Dr. Joe Eisenmann

Historical Perspectives on LTAD

The concept of long-term athlete development (LTAD) is not new. Understanding the history of a topic gives us access to the laboratory of human experience so that we can learn from past experiences – good and bad. This presentation will provide deeper insight and critique into LTAD concepts born out of former Soviet bloc with application of the underpinnings to contemporary sport academies and national and local grassroot efforts at improving the youth sport experience.

The Adolescent Speed Bump: History, Assessment & Impact on Performance

The process of growth and maturation occupy the first two decades of life. A major event during this time is the adolescent growth spurt. If you are working with adolescent athletes it is critical to understand this process and it’s impact.

In this presentation the following questions will be addressed: What does growth at adolescence look like? What factors affect maturation? How can we assess maturation? How does growth at adolescence impact performance? How do we control for maturation when testing/monitoring? What is the role of ‘bio-banding’?

Ruth Waghorn – Understanding The Place Of Speed Work in Team Sport Athlete Development

During this part-theory, part-practical session Ruth will explore the importance of speed work in the development in youth athletes. She will cover its place within the team sport program, a toolbox for coaches, what to look for when we are coaching, and how to problem solve common technical issues seen in youth athletes.

Nico Kolokythas – Promoting Evidence Based Practise In The Traditional Environment

Ballet is an early specialization discipline based on tradition. Young dancers who enter the vocational dance education at 11+ year of age, participate in 19 hours of structured activities/training, that increases to 27-37 hours at the ages 16-19. Movement proficiency, with a limited movement vocabulary, is the priority of the training, whereas the physical preparedness is neglected. Injury prevalence in pre-professional dancers can reach 75%. Most of the injuries are overuse and in the lower limb.

The focus of Nico’s talk will be on the 3-year PhD journey in a vocational ballet school and how applied research can inform practice for the development of the adolescent dancer. Case studies, cross-sectional and randomised controlled studies that have formulated this PhD will be discussed. Finally, the presentation will also discuss management of change in a rigid environment.

Howard Green – Starting The Athletic Journey: Bringing Structure To The Unstructured

In this practical session Howard will be taking you through his approach to starting the athletic development journey with U10s. Many coaches talk about the need for a more unstructured learning/training environment but this can be misinterpreted or leave coaches unsure of what to deliver.

Through his SuperMovers – SMASH programme Howard has created a framework and objectives for developing:

  • Stamina
  • Mobility
  • Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed
  • Strength & Power – via SuperHeroes
  • Honing Sports Skills

In the practical the focus will be on Howard develops the co-ordination element of the SMASH programme. The session will include activities/exercises to challenge Reactions, Balance, Rhythm, Adaptability, Differentiation, Interoperability, Orientation.

Speakers – Sunday 28th July

Paudie Roche – Olympic Weightlifting For The Youth Athlete

Paudie will be taking attendees through his top down approach to coaching the Olympic Lifts and how to modify the lifts and their derivatives to suit Youth athletes with various dysfunctions. Through the session he will look at teaching the Snatch, Clean and Jerk from the Top Down outlining the various benefits of using this approach and the various phases / derivatives associated with each lift that may be suitable for the athlete you coach.

James Baker – Enhancing LTAD Pathways with Gymnastics & Parkour

Gymnastics and Parkour are two sports that can be incorporated as part of a Long Term Athletic Development pathway that can contribute to developing the all-round athleticism of our athletes in a more creative and free-flowing environment.

In this theory-practical session, James will discuss background research and his rationale for the inclusion of these activities as part of an athletic development pathway and take attendees through a range of practical examples including:

  • Ground Based Movements
  • Bracing
  • Precision Jumping & Landing
  • Rolling
  • Vaulting
  • Climbing
  • Building Athletic Skills Tracks (AST)
  • Utilising AST’s for Assessment

Rich Clarke – Change of Direction Throughout Maturation: A Deeper Look

As part of his PhD Rich is investigating a COD testing battery where through the use of both a 505 test and a linear sprint test we can independently quantify COD ability (via the COD deficit), linear speed and also deceleration ability (via a new deceleration deficit) which allows a much more in depth look at the complex interaction between qualities that contribute to COD performance.

His research is examining how these abilities change throughout maturation. Where large, non-linear increases seen in body mass, stature, eccentric and concentric force production and motor control are occuring throughout the maturation process. What is the impact of the significant changes in this critical stage of development? How does deceleration technique change due to the adjustments required for a heavier and higher centre of mass?

Marcus Hannon – Eating You Out of House & Home: The Unique Energy Requirements of Elite Youth Athletes

Recent research has shown that youth athletes, across a number of sports, have extremely high energy expenditures. It is imperative that youth athletes at least match their energy intake to their expenditure, given the detrimental effects of low energy availability on growth, health and performance. This presentation will cover the most up to date scientific research and will provide some practical advice and strategies that Marcus has used in his practice with youth athletes.

Dr. Joe Eisenmann

Hurricanes, The Stock Market & The Prediction of Future Athletic Ability

Can we predict future athletic ability in youth? Who’s the next target athlete? This presentation will examine concepts and current research in talent identification including genetics, testing and tracking or the stability of athletic traits from child to adolescence and into young adulthood. Lastly, we will consider if we are we doing it right or should we be taking different approaches?

Child To Champion – Future Leader Focus: Shane Fitzgibbon

Core Training from Elementary to Elite

There will be brief Powerpoint introduction on the subject of Trunk training, which will explain the importance of this topic, and how it pertains to ALL other areas of training. In particular, the subject of correct breathing will be covered, as well as a logical progression of core exercises that the delegates can use as a template in your future sessions.

The hands-on session will include a number of exercises designed to develop core stability, and will also engage the athletes, young and old, through gameplay and partner-interaction. You will learn how a simple ping-pong ball can replace untold reps of push-ups and planks, how wheel-barrow races can both challenge simple anti-rotation stability for the novice child right up to neural challenges for the elite athlete. Crawling patterns will be covered to show how they can develop both core stability, and also compliment  locomotion training (speed & agility). You will laugh, learn, sweat and burn in this hands-on.
