Breaking down the in person visits

Through communication with the coach, each visit can be unique to match the team needs:

  • Regular session: The Olympian/NTA supports the coaches’ workout by timing, providing technical feedback, and acting as an ‘excitement factor’ for workout that day. They will not interfere with the coaches’ planned session, but rather act as a reinforcement.
  • Olympian/NTA run session: The coach may ask the athlete to prepare a workout and run the session (technical skills, or other specifics will be communicated and targeted in the workout)
  • Olympian/NTA speaking session: The Olympian/NTA will address a topic of agreement (nutritional, goal setting, time management, facing challenges, etc)
  • Team dinner or social outing: The Olympian/NTA can come hang out with the youth and allow for a real connection to be established in a casual environment
