You'll get insight into the goals Coach Baumann sets over the course of a season, his coaching philosophy, how he improves his athletes' fundamental diving skills and a week-by-week training schedule designed to help divers peak when it matters most.

Season Planning

Before you can establish a schedule, you must set your goals for your team and individual athletes. Coach Baumann discusses the types of goals he sets and considers during the preseason, then dives further into the specific workouts needed to make significant progression during the season. It's important to identify the skill level of your athletes when they come in, as well as where as where you want them to be once the season concludes.

Using a PowerPoint presentation, Coach Baumann walks you through a week-by-week schedule that he typically follows during the high school season. You'll get insights on what Coach Baumann focuses on during each week for skill development, as well as how to keep athletes fresh for the postseason. Every week, a "voluntary of the week" is incorporated into practices to ensure that all essential dives are covered.

Daily Workouts

Coach Baumann explains daily workouts that are both efficient and creative. Workouts include dryland training, poolside training and work from the 1M board. Typically, Coach Baumann groups his divers by their ability levels at practice, which allows them to improve quicker than they would in one large group. Every practice includes 100s (front jumps), 200s (back jumps), going through the 1M board diving list and specific work on water entries.

Coach Baumann's practice planning and organization strategies are great for coaches of youth programs, high school teams and even collegiate instructors. You'll discover a great schedule for ensuring your athletes achieve plenty of growth and development over the course of a season.
