Staff Training Week

By Josh Sutchar | Sat, Mar 1

Coach, Welcome to TrainHeroic!

We are excited to work with your coaching staff and with your athletes. This week’s training will mirror the experience that your athletes will have with TrainHeroic each week. This week's training will prepare you to leverage TrainHeroic in order to take your team’s training to the next level. Expect to train for 10 minutes each day this week. Training will consist of light physical movement, some learning, and light practice using TrainHeroic's technology too. By the end of the week, you will understand exactly what to expect from your team going forward. At the end of the week, we will provide your staff with a weekly report to summarize the staff’s participation and progress. This process of training followed by real-time feedback will be the same process that the team benefits from, and this week will prepare your staff for what’s in store. Need some motivation? The “athlete of the week” on the staff will receive some TrainHeroic swag to wear proudly around the weightroom, on a date, or in the school’s hallways. Let’s get to work this week! Post questions, comments, or anything else to the Team's message boards. I’ll see you on the Leaderboard.
