Abstract

IN WOMEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL, A WINNING SEASON IS COMMONLY DEPENDENT UPON THE QUALITY OF TRAINING DURING THE PRESEASON PERIOD. FOR THE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACH (SCC), THIS IS A TIME TO DEVELOP THOSE CHARACTERISTICS, WHICH CAN PRODUCE MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE. UNIQUE NATIONAL COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION DIVISION III REGULATIONS LIMIT THOSE TRAINING SESSIONS IN THE NONCOMPETITIVE SEASON HIGHLIGHT THE NEED FOR ASSESSMENT AND, IN TURN, CALL FOR THE DESIGN OF AN APPROPRIATE AND WELL-ORGANIZED CONDITIONING REGIMEN. BY IDENTIFYING THE NEEDS AND GOALS OF THE TEAM, IN COLLABORATION WITH THE COACHING STAFF, THE SCC CAN ENHANCE HIS OR HER ABILITY TO IMPLEMENT AN EFFECTIVE TRAINING PLAN.
