In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I speak with another Brit abroad in Dave Hamilton who is Director of Performance Science at USA Field Hockey. I have been trying to hook up with Dave for a while now and after some internet issues and on the second take we finally got it done. Dave is a super clever guy and has such wide ranging experience in the field. There are so many things I wanted to speak to Dave about and we ended up covering so much.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is Dave Hamilton (background, experience and education)
  • Developing a coaching philosophy
  • Assessing movement competency
  • Performance markers in hockey
  • Aerobic vs anaerobic training
  • Fitness profiling
  • Peaking for an Olympic Games
