This is because the distance covered during the game is usually long. This is the distance covered when walking, jogging, sprinting, and moving backwards. Moreover, the players have to increase their muscle strengths for easy blocking and tackling during the game. These body movements require a strong core, as well as neck, arms, shoulders, and legs. Blocking relies on extension strengths from triceps muscle group in the upper arms, while tackling demands flexion strength from the biceps muscle group (Blazevich, 2012). The training program has to involve all the offensive and defensive players. Secondly, the football players need to augment their neck, traps, arm, and back strength. This is because most players experience pain at traps, neck, and back some days after the game. Furthermore, training will help the players to have explosive power and they can achieve this through dynamic effort movement, which the players should perform at the power phase. The players have to increase the strength of the leg muscles. Football is played unilaterally on one leg. Hence, it is vital to build strengths needed to succeed while playing unilaterally. This can be achieved through spilt squats, lunges, step-ups, sled drags and prowler pushes. Muscle flexibility is also essential in a game of football. This is because it reduces the likelihood of getting muscle sprain during the game (Hashley, 2009). The players also should have high speed during the game. Therefore, the power training and the application of high velocity is essential. Speed and power training contributes to the PHYSICAL EDUCATION: APPLIED COACHING SCIENCE AND PERFORMANCE 3 ability to fire off the ball and drive the opponents backwards (Wilmore, Costill &Kenney, 2008, p191). Program rationale The training will reduce the chances of getting muscle pain a few days after a game. Additionally, it increases the muscle flexibly hence reduces the players’ chances of having muscle injuries. The training will enable the players to win the competition since it will increase their muscle strengths and velocity, which are essential in football (Miyahara, Naito, Ogura et al, 2012). Players’ skills improve dramatically with proper physical training. Hence, they should have substantial time for training. Therefore, attention to training program translates into upgrading of field performance. Muscle fitness will augment the players’ power and speed, which will enable them to withstand contact with their opponents (Bompa , 1999, P 43). Training helps to keep the players healthy since it will lessen their likelihood of getting cardiovascular illnesses (Wilmore, Costill &Kenney, 2008, p125).

Evidence of underlying scientific principles In well-trained players, there is evidence to support a positive association between performance during the game and the training intensity. For instance in marathon, researchers have reported that those athletes who exceed 100 km during training can run faster than those who do not exceed 100km during their training. Likewise, performance variable in well-trained football players have been proved to connect positively with the amount of training (Dick, 1999, p 23).
