Trainability is determined by the athletic profile (Combination of Physical Competency Assessment & Performance Indicator tests) and extensive review of training and competition records. The key is to determine what the athlete can do, where they can start the training. Every athlete will not start training at the same level. Select modes and methods of training appropriate for the athlete’s current level of trainability. I want to emphasize again- stress what the athlete can do, build on their strengths and minimize weaknesses. This will insure that the training suites their current level of development. It will also insure a level of quality in the training.
