With lots of competitions finally back on schedules across the country, the High Noon coaching staff has developed a new policy regarding training requirements for competition.
Our coaching staff has decades of competition experience and one of the most important lessons we’ve learned is that you MUST prepare properly to achieve consistent success in competition. Even with proper preparation, success is STILL not guaranteed! Failing to prepare, however, does a huge disservice to the team you represent, the coaches and teammates that spend time and energy training with you, and, most importantly, yourself.
Absolute minimum of two training sessions per week. For newer practitioners especially – Coach Leah has been an integral resource in game planning over the course of High Noon’s existence. She is an experienced competitor herself and a resource you should seriously consider consulting if newer to competition.
Absolute minimum of three training sessions per week. Student will also discuss a training plan with Coaches Tim and Matt for approval.
The coaching staff puts forth a lot of effort to ensure that competitively inclined students have an opportunity to succeed. The above requirements assist in giving the student a baseline training load to be successful in competition. Please note, that the above requirements are minimums. Additional training sessions are always encouraged for students who are preparing for competitions.
Last, just so it is clear, we do not expect you to compete under the High Noon flag at any competition unless you have met these standards. You are, of course, ultimately free to do what you please (i.e. compete independently, etc.), but it is important for us to set a baseline standard of readiness for those that want to represent the gym in competition.
