Software for planning sport training: Basketball application
Abstract:It is necessary to establish, define, and specify initially, before the development of a season, the greatest number of variables affecting the development of the training process. This generic definition will serve as a framework for subsequent concretion and development in the different phases of training. The computing application that we here present allows the planning of the training process (the season, macrocycles, mesocycles, microcycles and sessions). This computer application, PYC-Basket, aims to be an instrument to facilitate the work of planning and controlling training sessions for basketball coaches, making this process more rigorous and objective. The computer system presented helps the planning process of the training of basketball teams. It is exhaustive, precise, and objective, and ranges from the general data of a season to those of a training session. Moreover, initial planning information will be compared with real information that will be collected in the different training sessions. This allows control of the training process, so that the deviations occurring in it can be studied. This instrument permits making better use of the time used for planning and controlling the training session, since this will be done automatically on introducing the real data of each work session. The work of the coach must be orientated towards the interpretation of this data and any appropriate adjustments.
