Sports Medicine, a key factor for Coaches in Level II course
TIJUANA, Mexico, November 20, 2017- Activities of the
International Level II Course for coaches have been complemented
with a special Sports Medicine lecture at the FIVB-Norceca
Regional Development Center.
The lecture was presented by Dr. Carlos Jiménez Amaro, a leading
Cuban specialist in Sports Medicine and responsible for the same
area at the Baja California Sports and Physical Culture
One of the main points of this work session consisted in the
preparation of both players and game plans during training and
competition initial cycles as well as the so-called macrocycles
that are part of international tournaments.
Jiménez Amaro, who has a vast experience as a medical delegate
in his native country and in other nations of the American
continent, including Mexico, remarked how important is
prophylactic and physiological knowledge, as well as prevention
All these elements, he stated, are a good influence in both
individual and collective performances. "A synergy and
constant communication between coaches and the specialists such
as sports doctors, along with a multidisciplinary plan are key
in achieving results," he explained.
The course activities continued with practical sessions on the
court. Through them, the applicants to Level II continue with
this learning process prior to the evaluations and certification
tests that will take place in the final phase.
