Coaching Recreational Sports in a Post-COVID World

By Published On: September 2, 2021

As coaches, it is imperative that we assess our athletes’ overall impact from the pandemic as they enter or return to recreational sports. This presentation explores those physical, mental, and lifestyle impacts during the pandemic that may increase their risks of injury.

The importance of goal setting will be discussed as the coach and athlete must establish agreeable performance measures which reinforce slow progression focusing on injury prevention.

Training plan development is discussed, primarily focusing on the importance of a return-to-sports phase before prescribing an annual periodized training plan. This presentation by Todd Gober, MS, PhD-c, concludes with a discussion on the importance of monitoring progression while reinforcing injury prevention.

Gober found his passion for health and fitness through triathlons, as he became dedicated to transforming his own health. Today he is completing his PhD in Health and Human Performance at Concordia University Chicago.
