[Forum Topic] High School Football Periodisation
One of our members has recently opened an interesting topic on the forum. Feel free to leave your opinion.
I’m currently working in Australia and have the task of developing a training schedule for a high school football program that is in a contract to receive 16 hours per week of training from the coaching academy employed by the school.
The boys training are 12-13 years old and play every Wednesday afternoon. Whilst this may seem fairly simple to plan my concern is that these players ALSO train with their clubs. The school has no relationships with the clubs and unfortunately, the club coaches put their interest first ahead of the school coaching. Club training is twice/three times per week PLUS a game on a Saturday.
