Transcript of Year 11 Formative Multi Modal

By Claire Dalton Touch Football Training Program Touch Football: Fitness Components and Skill Requirements Touch football is a quick-changing intensity sport that utilizes a range of different fitness components in order to play efficiently. The main components needed are agility, speed, and aerobic capacity (O'Connor, 1992). Agility and speed is key to dealing with quick acceleration, while a healthy aerobic base is vital to any sport (O'Connor, 1992). The fitness tests challenged the anaerobic, glycolytic agility, speed endurance, and aerobic capacity within each individual. The tests are as follows: Fitness and Skill Tests (St Andrews Lutheran College, 2012) After completing the fitness tests, the table below is able to show that my speed endurance was the least developed skill. Though, in order to be able to work on speed endurance, a good aerobic base is needed. This statement is supported by C.L Templeton, who quotes that:
"Touch is predominantly an anaerobic sport however, an aerobic base
is required in order to recover from numerous anaerobic effort". Aerobic Fitness St Andrews Lutheran 11 &12 Fitness Results (Girls) Training Session High intensity efforts cause substantial lactic acid build up, fatiguing the muscles from performing to their potential. In touch football especially, intensities can range from extreme to low.

This whiplash effect requires a player to have a developed aerobic base. An excerpt from the Allen article is able to demonstrate this further,
"Given that recovery from alactic efforts is dependent on the aerobic system, and that a significant amount of activity is of the aerobic/jogging type, the importance of the aerobic system should be appreciated but related to that of the anaerobic alactic system."

This means that an aerobic base is necessary whilst playing touch, but should also be linked to anaerobic alactic efforts, so there is no lactic acid produced. Using the information stated in the previous slide, a training session was selected from the Australian Touch Association (ATA) to develop my aerobic capacity. Sprints Speed Endurance Aerobic Glycolytic Agility The session was extremely tiring, and felt quite challenging. The day after I could feel lactic acid in my muscles. Video Diary Fartlek Training Fartlek training utilizes the aerobic energy system, though periods of fast paces, which may be due to uneven surfaces (e.g. hills), and allows the body to increase the use of the lactic acid system (Amezdroz et.al., 2004, p 328). This can somewhat mimic the motions of touch football, as players are continuously running, with short periods of anaerobic work. This can be demonstrated in the graph below.
