Dave does a great job explaining the steps to take in order to be prepared for the up coming season.


I enjoyed the video. Very valuable learning points. Thanks Dave and TRS.


Cool stuff Dave! I had implemented the periodization program over the last couple of years including a checklist which has been really useful. Hope all is well.


So useful for my planning for the season ahead and Dave Ellis is very clear


can you point me in the right direction regarding the use of apps for iPads to show back moves or set plays
