The Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs and Advanced Technologies, jointly hosted this course from September 22nd - 24th 2009 at the Hasley Crawford Stadium. UTT High Performance Coaches and Trainers benefitted from the Functional Path to Build and Rebuild the Complete Athlete "The Gambetta Method."

The facilitators, Vern Gambetta, Dr. David Joyner and Edwin Ryan, imparted their knowledge in the following areas:

  • team approach to working with the complete athlete by fostering communication between physician, physical therapist, athletic trainer, athletic development coach, the sport coach and  athlete
  • To understand functional movement
  • Adapt a high performance coaching model
  • Provide a practical understanding of planning training and rehabilitation
  • Understand how the demands of the sport dictate the conditioning and rehabilitation programme  "Take another look"
  • Understand the role of work capacity as a limiting factor in performance
  • Relate how training = Rehab and Rehab = Training
  • Relate the role of functional strength in the training/rehab process
  • Teach the role of movement mechanics as it applies to the development of sport specific speed
  • Understand the role of fundamental movement skill as a basis of specific sport skill
