Abstract

MANY HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMS TAKE A SHORT TERM APPROACH TO PLANNING, EMPHASIZING COMPETITIVE PERFORMANCE RATHER THAN ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT. WHILE FACILITATING PERFORMANCE IN THE SHORT TERM, THIS APPROACH CAN ULTIMATELY LIMIT THE FULL POTENTIAL OF THE ATHLETE. QUADRENNIAL PLANNING ALLOWS FOR LONGTERM PLANNING TO BE INSTIGATED, WHICH FOCUSES ON ALLOWING ATHLETES TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL AND ULTIMATELY RESULTS IN HIGHER AND MORE STABLE LEVELS OF PERFORMANCE.
