Monitoring of training in youth female basketball: comparison of the load planned by the coach with the load perceived by athletes
Keywords:physical training, basketball, youth
The purpose of this study was to compare the internal training load (ITL) perceived by the athletes (ITLa) with the load planned by the coach (ITLc), as well as to compare the perceptions of recovery. The sample consisted of 10 young athletes from a female basketball team (age= 13.20± 1.03 years, stature= 162.91± 5.16 cm and body mass= 58.20± 12.25 Kg) and a coach with an experience of 08 years. The subjective perception of exertion scale (CR) 10 for estimating the internal training load (ITL) and a perceived exertion recovery scale (ERS) were used. All analyses were performed using Jamovi software (version 1.6), Shapiro-Wilk normality test, one-sample t-test (normality met) and Wilcoxon test (normality not met). A significance level of p≤ 0.05 was used in all cases. Six of the 10 training sessions analyzed showed compatible results between coach and athletes regarding ITLc and ITLa. As for ERS, there were significant differences in 60% of the sessions. Given the results, the initial hypothesis that pointed to differences between the perceptions of coaches and athletes in the analyzed variables was partially met.
