There are various components to the warm-up and cool down in daily practice and on game day. The most essential component to avoid injury and maximize performance is proper stretching. In this video series, proper stretching is discussed both during the season and in the off-season. The off-season is a high risk time for injury.

specialtopics Training Athletes: Recovery Time and Performance Training Athletes: Recovery Time and Performance

Why is recovery time so essential? How much recovery time is enough? It depends on the athlete. "Athletes are individuals," says Dr. Phillip Bishop of the University of Alabama. That can be a strange concept for coaches who spend much of their time building a Team. But, for maximum performance, coaches have to "study the individual." Dr. Bishop explains the physiology of training athletes and the necessity of adequate recovery time. He also offers practical ways for coaches to evaluate athletic performance and recovery time needs. Coaching is changing. But, we'll help you stay ahead of the game!
