ATHLETIC COACH – THE VALUABLE SPECIALISTS IN THE BACKGROUND

Do you want to make your team fitter, improve the physical condition of your players and minimize the risk of injury? Then the CASv Athletic Coach in Football is the right course for you.

The demands on athletic coaches in soccer have increased considerably in recent years. The systematic improvement of conditional skills in competition, the increasing individualization of training measures and injury-preventive training options are increasingly expanding the range of tasks in this specialist area.

For example, athletics coaches need to optimize their players’ football-specific endurance performance based on sound basic endurance, take into account the various aspects of speed in the training process and improve maximum strength levels in order to subsequently develop speed performance.

In addition, topics such as functional training, core strengthening, mobility, leg axis stabilization, coordination training and position-specific athletic measures are part of the versatile and demanding range of tasks.

ACTIVITY AS AN ATHLETIC TRAINER IN SOCCER

With regard to competitive sports, it is clear that athletics is an interplay of complex movement skills and the demands in soccer are constantly increasing due to the ongoing professionalization.

Today’s soccer players must be able to combine skills such as agility, speed, stability, strength, endurance and coordination without neglecting the focus on their own ball and game technique. Training these skills is the main task of athletic coaches in football.

To do this, they need specific sport motor knowledge and skills in order to teach and instruct appropriate exercises. Athletic choaches set up systematic, position-specific and individual training plans to improve each individual player as well as the team as a whole.

The goal is long-term performance development, performance optimization and performance maintenance. Age and performance level determine the training program. The close exchange with the coaching team and the coordination of team and individual training depending on the competition calendar are therefore fundamental prerequisites for the daily work.
