Course content
Setting-up a theoretical base for the expert control of the training process, with the accent on children and youth. 1. Goals and assignments of the sports training (ST) 2. Sports performance 3. Theoretical basis of ST - adaptation, workload, super compensation 4. Content components, forms and means of ST 5. Conditioning / fitness training - methods of development of motor abilities 6. Coordinative abilities 7. Specific principles of ST 8. Formation of ST - division of periods 9. Sports training with youth 10. Training process control

Learning outcomes
The aim of this subject is to master basic knowledge in the field of sports training as a prerequisite to controlling the training process. Sports training is presented as a systematic longitudinal process. Students are informed about theoretical fundamentals of the following issues: sports performance as a final value objective in sports; capacity of load as an adaptive impulse in sports training (including loading, recovery processes and their development); component parts of sports training - technical practice, tactical practice, conditioning (theoretical fundamentals and training aspects of power, speed, endurance, coordination and flexibility as the representatives of motor abilities), psychological preparation; formation of sports training (longitudinal division), type of training cycles including sports unit, training periods, sports shape; sports specifics of youth sports preparation and training of the disabled.
