What’s the difference between practicing and training?
In order to be the best athlete possible, both training and practicing are important pieces of the puzzle. Practicing and training may sound like they are the same thing but they are actually different. When you practice you are doing something repeatedly so it becomes second nature. Practicing looks like a goalkeeper blocking the ball over and over or a forward taking practice shots.
Training is improving on a certain physical ability. Let’s say a player needs to be able to run faster to defend a larger area of the field, training can help the player increase speed and create a stronger endurance level so they can maintain speed throughout the game. This is why athletic and strength training are crucial to athletic performance.
Why is training important?
Training is important because it increases an athlete’s speed, strength, agility, and endurance. This results in increased performance come game day. Elite coaches like those on our staff are able to provide the skills and knowledge needed for an athlete to perform at the highest level possible. Training is done on and offseason so when regular practices start-up and the season begins, the field hockey player will be ready to dominate their opponents.
Yes, proper training gives you the upper hand on game day but it also is a way to prevent injuries and speed up recovery times. The better shape you are in physically the less likely you are to experience an injury. Training allows less time on the bench and more time doing what you love.
