SMA-VIC is pleased to release a creative new tool for athletes and coaches to determine if they are over training.
The Over Training tool explores the fundamental problem for young athletes of over training, the multi-coach, multi-team and multi-sport training load.
Over training can be detrimental to an athlete's performance and can lead to injuries, stress and fatigue. This tool allows users to calculate their total training hours and evaluates the results to determine if over training is occurring. It also provides a training/competition diary, information on talking to your coach, facts about over training and steps to put in place to over-come over training.
