S.M.A.R.T APEX PLAN

The “SMART” APEX Plan clarifies a vision for players to improve at their peak rate. Fundamentals become more important the higher levels you go. Players understanding their process to master the basics and build consistency increases staying power and productivity.

SPECIFIC

Detailed work on tendencies, habits and skills. This is accomplished by strategically building out every step of each drill and having a specified result.

MEASURABLE

Heighten mental focus by competing against a number or time while working towards a specific goal within training.

ACHIEVABLE

Create goals that can be achieved during drills and as a result of training (in game results). Adjust goals once proper progress is shown.

RELEVANT

Innovative concepts to keep the environment fun and challenging, while not losing focus on the main goal to be accomplished.

TRACKABLE

Keep detailed records of results (training, practice, in game) to see how well the specified concepts/skills are being grasped. Necessary adjustments can be made as improvement is tracked.
