*Dryland Training with A Long Term Purpose
(May 16: 1pm – 5pm) $50
In the past, grade school physical education combined with organized sports created a base of athletically capable youngsters. With the decline of required physical education in public schools youth sports finds itself with the responsibility of providing moderate to vigorous physical activity. Only 24% of 7 to 14 year old soccer, baseball and softball players get the sixty minutes of MVPA the government recommends. In organized swimming practices we are close to having 100% of our participants meet MVPA. This presentation is about incorporating dryland training and giving our young swimmers the opportunity to develop rhythm, balance, coordination, core strength and swimming power & keeping them in the sport for long term swimming development. Includes manual and dvd. (10 education units)
*Principles of Leadership for Coaches, Athletes & Parents
(May 16: 6pm – 9 pm) $50
