2018 Baltimore Off-Season Development Camp
Apr 20 - Apr 22
The (OSD) Camp accelerates understanding and execution of each player’s primary movements (mechanics), while helping them develop the ability to self-correct, not self-destruct under pressure. This goal is achieved through a simple process of Installation, Implementation, and Application of competition of the training content.
REGISTRATION: 5:00 – 5:45
DAY 1: 6:00PM – 9:00PM
Phase 1 – Installation – “Listen & Learn”
We begin by teaching the primary movements (mechanics) of each position using a common language, non-negotiables, and universal truths that sequentially order that movement's execution toward the desired changes.
This segment is not about an information transfer, it’s about permanent transformation through building block learning supported by compelling arguments, science and biomechanics that result in accelerated understanding.
Phase 1 includes:
DAY 2: 9:00AM – 4:00PM (LUNCH PROVIDED)
Phase 2 – Implementation – “Rep & Review”
We continue accelerated athlete self-discovery and feel by isolating the most common primary movement variables through simple drill repetition.
The goal is to convert the teaching of clearly delivered installation thoughts to an informed feel using measurable feedback from the results of simple drills & body shapes. This is done through drills that isolate movement with "all other things being constant" (ceteris paribus-Latin for controlling variables to determine whether a particular action is causing a failure or success of the whole).
Phase 3 – Application (OSD Camp includes Light Competition –see #4) – “Act & Assess”
We generate small group, controlled, situational repetitions in live-fire scenarios or multi-tasking drills requiring discipline and awareness.
This segment utilizes guided self-discovery over significant teaching as the preferred coaching method. Player is engaged by the coach after each repetition to demonstrate situational awareness, grasp of assignment, and mastery of technique.
Phase 2, 3 Includes:
DAY 3: 9:00AM – NOON
Phase 4 – Competition – "Preparation and Performance"
Competing the full scope of learned behavior with immediate feedback, total skill integration, and performance driven outcomes.
This represents the actual assessment phase of what level of change penetration has been achieved by the coach.
