Planning Form


The following information is to enable me to organise training through to the end of March 2004.  Some athletes are continuing training with me after school and are on individual programmes.  I was not able to see all those I wished about training last term - this is your opportunity to receive a training programme and continue training (at whatever level of commitment you are able to make).  Mr. Reynolds, Rawles and myself will take the training - the split will depend on what is appropriate for you.

Everyone must complete this form regardless of whether or not they want an individual programme.

Training Programmes

I am happy to write out training programmes for anyone willing to make the commitment to follow the programme exactly.  It takes a lot of effort to write out individual programmes so only ask for a programme if you are prepared to do what is on the programme and nothing else (it is an insult to a coach if you attend other coach's sessions and it makes it very difficult to assess the effectiveness of the programme).  Once the winter sports season is over the training sessions may be taken by any coach but the programme will be set by myself.

If you are not on an individual programme  then you will attend organised training (sessions set by myself) as normal but the sessions may be different to those who have been training for some time.  The group will split between the coaches depending on what is appropriate for your level of fitness and your event(s).  You are still expected to train exclusively with the school - the only other option (not preferred) is to train exclusively with another coach.

Do you wish to have an individual programme?     YES    NO   

If YES ensure you have completed all the above and add any other comments helpful to writing a programme below:
