BE YOUR BEST WE WORK WITH PLAYERS LIKE YOU
Whilst Match-Fit has worked with sports players at the very highest levels we also understand that the vast majority of players will not progress to elite level and quite simply wish to maximise their talent at the level they have chosen.
With a long expertise in Long-Term Player Development, the “Be Your Best” program is aimed at youth and academy level teams/clubs/players to ensure that solid foundations are put in place with youth players from 13 and upwards to adult levels to ensure that they receive the very best in athletic/physical development coaching.
HOW IT WORKS
YOUR 5 STEP FORMULA TO SUCCESS
STEP 1. Needs analysis - we listen carefully to where your ambition wants to get you and then look at current conditions, approaches and preparations.
STEP 2. With joint agreement of the destination we plot a way forward based on what we know works but within the context of your unique situation, culture, resources and budgets.
STEP 3. Get to work - there is no time like the present. Across every step we involve and communicate with coaches, player(s) and club as appropriate to ensure everyone understands what we are doing and why we are doing it
STEP 4. Feedback and Evaluation - plans rarely survive first contact….it is hugely important to regularly evaluate our work and approach to check for progress and to see if we can find better ways and approaches
STEP 5. The ultimate success is to work towards a performance culture that is sufficiently informed and empowered to continue post our intervention
Our experience ensures that only the most age and stage appropriate programs are designed to suit your players.
We have a dual focus - the needs of the player(s) and also the demands of the sport.
In an age where our youth are more sedentary than ever “Be Your Best” provides a physical development pathway for players that ensures they will develop higher levels
of skill and aptitude in key areas such as mobility, stability, strength, speed and movement skills.
This development as part of the “Be Your Best” program means that all your youth players will have the chance to maximise their own potential in an appropriate and responsible fashion utilising insights supported by the latest research and practices adapted by the standard-bearers globally in terms of youth development.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“I had the pleasure of working with Paul for three years at Meath GAA, overseeing and implementing a Talent Academy Programme to develop our young players.
Paul’s ability to identify and correct movement patterns was unlike any I’ve seen before and made a dramatic difference to to the performance and wellbeing of the players. His attention to detail in programme planning meant all our players were catered for on an individual basis.
Paul would be a true asset for any positions requiring Athlete Development & Sports Performance and comes with my heartfelt recommendation.”
