Strength and Conditioning
We have a plan for getting everyone in shape for the season ahead – while it’s never too late to join in you’ll get the most from it by being in from the start. If you have your own programme that’s great, share it with the Captains/Coaches so that we know what you’re doing and can offer advice if needed.

Speed and Agility
Once we have build up strength and power in our muscles we need to apply this to work we do on the field. These workouts focus on the technique and footwork involved in linear and lateral speed as well as quick changes of direction

Throwing
Just as important as becoming a super athlete is honing your ultimate-specific skills. We are introducing a throwing skills programme that will be updated throughout the season. Setting aside dedicated time for focussed throwing practice is probably the single easiest way to become a better player all round.

  • Phase 1 – Fundamentals: Focuses on fundamentals but still relevant to all levels of experience.
  • Phase 2 – Dynamics: Develop your throws against a force and focus on moving in and out of throwing positions
  • Phase 3 – Range: Improve consistency and distance of lead pass throws

2013 Season

  • Open team training attendance
  • Open training recaps
  • Calendar
  • Fitness
    • Fitness log: this is where we track all our activity and compete in teams for each months prize. For the current fitness block we have set goals that should reflect an improvement in general fitness/strength and for everyone:
      • 3 minutes of plank
      • 45 seconds of tuck jumps
    • Core workouts: this file details most of the exercises used in our core circuits.
      • Core workout app: If you have an android phone you can use the app “A HIIT Timer” and import this file to give you a selection of workouts with the timing set up for you. If this does not work you are probably using the standard android browser and should switch to something better; it is known for download problems.
