summary: You spend a great deal of time carefully planning the strength and conditioning programs for your athletes. Each cycle, and each day within that cycle, is designed to ultimately bring about optimal performance capabilities. How do you react when athletes miss assigned workouts because sport coach(es) unexpectedly alter plans at the last moment (i.e., change practice schedule, call a team meeting, plan team-building activities)? We asked our panel of coaches how they respond in this situation.
