Greenhill School is committed to taking a comprehensive approach to analyzing and implementing programs that enhance our community’s knowledge, performance and wellness around these domains. The Sports Performance team builds long-term athletic development programs that are age and skill appropriately related to team and student needs to improve fitness, wellness, and performance. In addition, the team partners with families and staff to enhance our community, students and athletes through performance, wellness education and training implementation.
 
Sports performance is a continuum of many components of exercise science, testing, physiology, biomechanics, sport nutrition, sports analytics and sports medicine. Mastery of the continuum is best achieved sequentially. Youths of all ages, abilities and aspirations should engage in long term athletic development programs that promote physical fitness, social emotional well-being and sports performance. To optimize sports specific refinement, it’s important to understand and develop the preliminary stages; foundation components of fitness and sports foundational training. This requires a comprehensive approach to investment of time, diligence, discipline, mental acumen, frequency, repetition, volume, and proper recovery patterns.

“YEAR-ROUND ALL SEASON” SPORTS PERFORMANCE TRAINING

Pre-Season
Consistent with surgeon general recommendations, we also believe routine planned exercise enhances athletic ability and performance, as well as improves our ability to prevent chronic disease. Pre-season training can be defined as the preparatory phase most proximal to the upcoming season. This section of the comprehensive season incorporates initial assessments of the components of fitness, goal setting, introductory orientation to strength and conditioning programming. Because game time scheduling doesn’t play a role in weekly sports performance sessions, this is an opportune time to incorporate functional movement patterns, hypertrophy, strength, power, coordination, balance, endurance and strength capacity, sport specificity, weight & body composition goals. Time investment, frequency and volume are generally high during this phase.
 
• Accommodations are made to athletes playing sports year-round to incorporate performance goals and prevent chronic inflammation and overuse injuries.
 
In-Season Training
Consistent with surgeon general recommendations, we also believe routine planned exercise enhances athletic ability and performance, as well as improves our ability to prevent chronic disease. In-season training can be defined as the phase of training where maintenance of performance gains is strategized along with injury preventative recovery measure. Due to the in-season game schedule prioritizing the time commitments, this is typically the phase when frequency and volume are lowest to accommodate proper recovery methodologies.
 
• Accommodations are made to athletes playing sports year-round to incorporate performance goals and prevent chronic inflammation and overuse injuries.
 
Post-Season
Consistent with surgeon general recommendations, we also believe routine planned exercise enhances athletic ability and performance as well as improves our ability to prevent chronic disease. Post-season training can be defined as the preparatory phase a few weeks after the end of a sporting season, leading into pre-season training with adequate rest periods. This season incorporates recovery and complete rest after the competitive season schedule. Similar to our pre-season, this is an opportune time to restructure/adjust any or all performance goals. This season in general provides for the most allotment of time that coincides with increased time investment, progressions, frequency and volume to those goals.
