Player analysis

Key player factors within this needs analysis include:

  • The age of the player
  • The stage of development
  • The training background and training age of the player
  • The previous strength training experience of the player
  • The training tolerance and trainability of the player

Thus, when the S&C coach completes a review of these factors he or she is then required to make a sport analysis.
