SEASONAL PLANNING TOOL

The seasonal planning tool is designed for Learning to Compete athletes across Canada dedicated to reaching their full potential in the sport of volleyball.  The hours of training, competition and recovery are designed to build on the previous stage.  Canadian Volleyball players on the whole, practice far below the recommended number of hours for reaching elite levels.  We as coaches, should consider the team goals, balance, recovery, and the pursuit of excellence when planning the amount of practice and competition time for teams.  Please note that perhaps only a few athletes on a given CIS or CCAA have been identified for a high performance pathway for volleyball.  These athletes may need to seek training time outside of standard season schedules, in order to reach their full potential.
