Build Better Athletes with ASCA’s New Dryland Course

Check out this new edition of ASCA’s popular Dryland Training School (Oct. 2010).  This edition is almost 50% more extensive than the original school and has a number of new and useful features for coaches.  First, it comes with a DVD with 110 minutes of extensive demonstrations of more than 100 dryland training exercises. Second, there are three chapters that fully develop the place of dryland training in all programs from young age group novice athletes, to the elite athlete.  Third, it has a chapter that develops the idea of how we relate what we do on dryland, to direct faster swimming in the water.  The course also has information on developing a ‘cookbook’ approach if you lack the time to spend on extensive dryland development, and still want to do some dryland training.  And finally, there are five chapters that develop specific routines in different modalities such as stretch cords, Med-balls, Plyo-balls, hand weight exercises, and exercises with very limited amounts of equipment.  Whether you coach Age Group Athletes or Senior Swimmers, this manual is your basic primer on what to do, when and how to do it, and what it takes to effectively improve the athleticism of your athletes.
