How to Create a Yearly Training Plan : How to determine where your focus should be

How to determine where your focus should be :

To really figure out which of these areas to focus on in your training, you should go through a full series of skill tests to find your own unique strengths and weaknesses. For every category mentioned above, there are some simple tests you can complete to judge whether you are advanced, adequate, or below average at a particular skill. Once you have done this, it is time to look in the mirror and confront the weaker points of your skill set.

No one wants to dwell on what they aren't good at. It is much easier to flaunt your strengths and try to build them to the highest level possible. But as an athlete, your value is always going to be judged by your weakest link.

You may be the strongest player on the field, but if the other team is running past you all day, that strength is never going to matter. You could be the fastest player on the field, but if your balance and coordination are poor you likely will never be able to harness that speed to use to your advantage.

Once you learn what to target over the coming year, and are comfortable with the idea of training to eliminate your weaknesses, then you are ready to begin mapping out what to focus on at different times of the year.
