3 Healing from the Season Demands of the SeasonDemands of practicesShin or other Lower Leg FatigueGet realignment work done if needed
4 Where to Start?Figuring out which athletes participate in fall sports or winter sports?Athletes should rest at least two weeks before actually starting back practices. To avoid fatigue and injuries.These sports aid in keeping the athlete active.
5 4-6 weeks of Active Rest Get away from the sport Cross Training General fitness through fun activitiesAllow time to have Athletes come up with their individual schedules. (Jobs, vacations)Time with family and friendsSummer Camp Schedules
6 Mental Recovery 80% mental, 20% physical Get away from the rigors of going to practices dailyHearing the Coach's voiceThinking about Technique all of the timeCompetitions
7 Designing the Off-season Plan Making the body that you are going to useFinite-General- Specific3 week cyclesProgressive cycles to get the athlete prepared for the season
8 Finite- Evaluating the Athlete Weakness vs StrengthsTarget the areas that need improvementRunning mechanicsChange in Technique (changing takeoff foot or single arm to double arm technique in TJ)Core and General Weights
9 Weaknesses vs Strengths General to more specific to each athleteThings that takes more time than what could be accomplished during the season.Allows the coach to look at the training module that was used and see what you could build upon.
10 Running MechanicsOne of the major areas that can increase consistent jumpsSimple running drills (ABC Drills)Working on posture in the runKnee, Toe Up, Heel UpRunning through the hips in posture strides 40-60mGetting them used to rolling over Center of Gravity
11 Changing TechniquesThe off-season is the perfect time to address this issue.Boo Schexnyder states, " Its easier to work on this in the off-season to allow for the athlete to have the time to adapt then while in a competition season."Simple Drills to allow for athlete to get used to the feel of the body using this new technique.
12 Core and WeightsMajor area that you can always see big gainsBricks to build a solid foundationVery General Weightlifting (body weight, dumbbells, Olympic lift movements)Circuits combined with low intensity plyo metrics (skips, straight leg bounds, line hops, side to side hops)Medicine ball throws
13 Core and WeightsSets should be 4 sets of 8-10 reps with light to moderate weight depending on the athlete during the adaptation phase4 sets of 6 once you are into a more general phaseSimple lifts with Dumbbells to target both dominate and non-dominate sides of the body.

16 General Endurance General Endurance Minutes vs Miles Money in the bank, Food in the Tank-Clyde HartPennies make DollarsMinutes vs MilesMinutes allows the athlete to schedule their day around getting in therun. (on a grassy or soft surface)10-20 minutes 2-3 times a week to start working on general enduranceAfter 2 weeks would start adding some posture strides to start workingon running mechanics.Always approach running for a jumper as if they are a sprinter and nota distance runner.
