I am just wondering if anyone has a good fitness lesson for U.13's. I've got a new team with some super fit girls and some very unfit girls. Their skills are as widely mixed as their fitness abilities and I'm struggling knowing what I can do to accommodate all girls. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
You could do a timed circuit eg. 2mins each station, so it dosnt matter what fitness level the girls are, they go as hard as they can for the whole 2mins.
Let me know how you go.
we run a circuit, using ground ladders for footwork (can incorporate a ball by throwing one at them as they go through), hurdles ( a line of them), make a box using the hurdles that they have to jump in and out of, burbpees/situps/pushups, plank, obstaclals to zig zag around, sprints, jumping against a wall or fence,skipping, and throwing a ball against a wall in pairs. 2 mins is a good length of time if you keep the numbers at each station small, or just have them on a moving circuit for 5mins. we have a 30min fitness session at the beginning of each of our training session. we train for 1.5hrs to ensure we have time to do fitness.
Thanks Leanne & Tom! I hadn't thought about the timed circuit. We train for an hour so I can fit this in and a game at the end.
Will definitely try these out at our next session %3A)
