Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

An important requirement of any training process is individualised training performance. Individualisation requires that coaches and trainers take into account the abilities, learning characteristics and needs of athletes, regardless of their performance level. Each athlete is an individual with unique physiological and psychological characteristics that need to be taken into account when developing training plans. Modern technology monitors and records a wide range of variables that allow professionals to analyse training loads in detail, in numerical form or in easy-to-understand graphs, so that they can design the most appropriate training programme for the athlete. Professionals agree that the development of performance-related skills has different effects on participants of different ages. The body's response to training also depends on previous illnesses or injuries. Several studies suggest that the promotion of athletes' maturational development and the physical components of training should be integrated into technical and tactical training. During a planned training session, athletes should evaluate physiological responses to specific game situations and develop behavioural patterns that can be transferred to competition, integrating all the attributes and factors that improve game performance. Conscious application of the above methodological elements can play a significant role in maintaining health, whether in competitive or recreational sport.
