Mark,
if you don't mind me interjecting here I have only one point. Time at rest between training and practice is something I don't really see tossed around much, anywhere really. A good practice I have found with new or stubborn athletes if you have either of these, or even those who are just typically injury prone, is to split the time.

Put some time between training and practice and most often a much higher workload can be maintained particularly in season. Let's say it would look something like this just for shits and giggles:

Day 1
Training
12 hours at rest (work, school, whatever)
Practice

Day2
Training
12 hours at rest (same stuff)
Practice

and so on, use your jugdement as a coach as you get closer to competitive days in your schedules by removing whatever aspect of training you feel will hurt absolute performance in competition.

You probably know this stuff hence you being on this particular forum, and among this particular crowd. I pretty much just like to hear myself type though no applicable relevance may exist.
