Strategy, Structure and Systems Planning and Preparation for a County Senior Team

Fail to prepare Prepare to fail

Fail to prepare properly, You will fail!

Planning: • Quality knowledge and understanding is essential when putting together a backroom team • Agreement from the backroom team on a strategic plan on the way forward • Build a sound and durable structure that will withstand the challenges of the year/s ahead

Role as Team Coach and Trainer • Responsibility for the individual and collective Strength and Conditioning of the players • Work closely with Team Manager and fellow coaches to ensure continuity • Liase on a daily basis with the medical team with regard to injured players and plan appropriate re-hab training • Constantly reflect on and review practice


What is Periodisation? • Periodisation is planned long-term variation of the volume and intensity of training to prevent overtraining and promote optimal performance at the desired time.

Defining Volume and Intensity

• Volume- amount of work performed per exercise, per day, per month (sets x reps) • Intensity- the power output of the exercise (power = work/time)

Estimating Volume and Intensity • Training intensity- Average level of exercise intensity, per week, per month • Exercise intensity- Monitored by calculating the relative intensity (% of maximum exertion) • Training volume- estimated by volume load • Exercise volume- estimated by average % of exercise exertion

Periodisation Cycles • Macrocycle -long period of time, one year • Mesocycle - medium length of time, several weeks to several months • Microcycle- short length of time, one or more weeks

KEY POINT Periodisation involves shifting training priorities from non-sport-specific activities of high volume and low intensity to sportspecific activities of low volume and high intensity over a period of many weeks to prevent overtraining and optimise performance.

Matveyev’s Model of Periodisation: Appropriate for Novice Athletes

Modifications of Matveyev’s Model of Periodisation; for Gaelic Games Players

Periodisation Periods • Preparatory• Transition• Competition–Maintenance–Peaking

• Active rest-

Transition Phase • Modification to Matveyev’s original periodisation model, break between high volume training and high intensity training

Competition Period • In Gaelic Games with long season, may last 9 months • Peaking- very high intensity and very low volume • Maintenance- moderate intensity (8085% max) and moderate volume (2-3 sets, 6-8 reps)

Active Rest Any time during the training year
