Pre-season course: planning, evaluation and design of the training program

Preparing athletes for their best performance requires precision, specialized knowledge and dedication. If you are a sports professional looking to achieve the highest standards of excellence and want to train yourself with tools and strategies used in high performance, then this course is for you.

Pre-season is the foundation on which sporting success is built. It's a crucial and often unique time during the sporting season to shape fitness, set goals and map out individual development plans.

In this first edition of the Pre-season Course: planning, evaluation and design of the training program, we will delve into the planning and evaluation strategies that will enable the design of the training program. From monitoring the training load to individualizing the process, assessing physical characteristics and prescribing specific training, each aspect will be covered in a meticulous and comprehensive way and under the leadership of those who are in the field every day.

It is with great pride that we announce that the teachers leading and starring in this course are Prof. Dr. Francisco Tavares, Physical Performance Coordinator for Football at Sporting Clube de Portugal, together with Dr. Pedro Cardoso, Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Physical Performance Unit of Sporting Clube de Portugal - U-23 Team.
