GENERAL INTRODUCTION TO STAMINA CERTIFICATE
The Certificate covers stamina or endurance training for your chosen sport. The reason we start with endurance development is simple. At the start of the training year, stamina is seen as the first component of fitness that is undertaken in a training programme.

This certificate starts by looking at endurance development in general and then endurance as it applies to sport specific training for hockey. While hockey is not regarded as an “endurance sport”, we know that there is a need for endurance training of some dimension in order that players are conditioned to last a game of high intensity.

In order to understand the endurance requirement, the course looks at the physical fitness demands of the sport and tries to outline the best way to get players fit to meet these demands. In particular, we look at how fit a player needs to be to last a fast paced game. In other words we want to look at the type of specific fitness that is required in the sport of hockey. We normally make the assumption that all our students are well qualified at coaching the techniques and skills of the game and our aim is to integrate their ability to coach the physical fitness elements to enhance the work of skill coaching.

However if you are only a beginner coach, the course will still have plenty of important information and coaching tips for you. Having a National Hockey Association Level 1 Coaching Award should help you and obviously those who have achieved a SAQ® Level 1 Award (PSM – Performance Sport Movement Award, FM – Fundamental Movement Award, or even the eEMP – Early Essential Movement Patterns Award) will also find that any of these courses will have provided you with an excellent background understanding of fitness training in general.

In most sports, endurance training, if wrongly planned, can interfere with skill and speed development. By wrongly planned, we mean that a coach employs the wrong type of endurance training for the sports participants or introduces it at the wrong phase of a training session or over-emphasises it at the wrong phase of the annual programme.

The wrong type of endurance is the endurance that has no relevance on the hockey field. We are referring here to the slow endurance running of some year’s ago where the pace, the skill and movement activities of hockey were or are neglected. On the other hand, by having some endurance work in a training session at the wrong time can have a very negative effect on the overall success of an actual training session. So we will look at these two aspects of endurance training in regards to the specific sport of hockey.
