    informed by data

  • Your training is informed by your data. 

  • A little bit of quality data is better than lots of bad data.

  • Data doesn't just mean numbers. What's the story behind the statistics? 

  • Verbal feedback and context is vital to making sense of your training.

     adapted to

     the athlete

  • Your plan is unique to you. 

  • Training is built to address your weaknesses and leverage your strengths.

  • Illness and injury are inevitable for all athletes - when things don't go to plan, we adapt and find new ways .

     plan for     performance

  • Training is periodised, polarised, and backed by science.

  • Every training session has a clear purpose; every training block has a clear goal. 

  • Your weekly and monthly training is based on a longer term performance plan for achieving your goals.

 holistic

  • drivetrain coaches the whole person, not just the cyclist. 

  • Performance consists of many ingredients, including... 

    • Motivation

    • Mental training  

    • Physical education

    • Sleep

    • Nutrition

    • Performance psychology

Anyone under the age of 18 is a child. Coaching for youth and junior athletes is framed within this context.

 

drivetrain coaching for youth and junior athletes places a primary focus on 'healthy, meaningful and varied life-forming experiences, which is centred on the whole athlete and development of the person'.**

 

Many of the world's best athletes played lots of sports until late in their sport development (and still do).

drivetrain is committed to best practice for youth and junior coaching and adheres to the following:

coaching youth + juniors

 

The most useful education for being a professional sports person, pretty much any sport, is an outdoor childhood, whether you want to be a footballer, an ice hockey player or a cyclist.
