Athletic and Personal Development
Check out the interesting workouts used by Athletic & Personal Development program trainer, Yutaka Nakamura, with 11-year-old tennis phenom, Maria Shishkina.
TUSCALOOSA — Alabama coach Nick Saban has plenty of areas of development his football team must address.
Among the coach’s themes throughout this summer camp has been being a physical team, finishing strong and being disciplined.
But the coach also talked to reporters several times about off-the-field things such as team building and chemistry.
Mary Pierce has always bristled at any mention of the "R" word.
Though it's not yet official, several news outlets (and a Twitter feed from the man himself) are reporting that Athletic & Personal Development program alum and U.S. Men's National Team star Jozy Altidore will play for Hull City in the Barclay's Premier League this season.
Currently under contract by La Liga's Villarreal, Altidore's stock shot up this summer with his performance for the USMNT in the Confederations Cup.
Athletic & Personal Development program director Trevor Moawad took some time recently to speak with Florida State University blog fearthespear.com after working with some football players during 7-on-7 drills.
Moawad has worked with several collegiate and professional teams and organizations on the mental aspect of athletics, including the University of Alabama, Jacksonville Jaguars and U.S. Soccer Federation.
This week's IMG Swimming Academy summer camp featured swimmers from all around the world, including Austria, Colombia, France, Panama, United Arab Emirates, United States and Venezuela. Check out some photos of a recent morning session below.
*USA forward Freddy Adu has been conditioning at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., in preparation to rejoin Benfica this week. However, the Insider is hearing that at least one Dutch club is interested in acquiring him on loan. He has three years left on his Benfica contract. After last season's bench-sitting experience with Monaco, another loan needs to be with a club "that is going to play him. The [Monaco] situation cannot happen again. It was not good for Freddy. It has to be the right situation," a source close to Adu said.
It seemed like a throwaway line at the end of Pete Dougherty’s position-by-position story about the linebackers that ran today and focused largely on Aaron Kampman’s switch from defensive end to outside linebacker, but after giving it more thought it might be time to wonder if A.J. Hawk’s job really could be in jeopardy or at the very least whether his role in the defense might be reduced.
How do you think Matt has progressed since coming to Bradenton this spring?
