Why is it so important to continue strength training during the season? I’ll give you 2 good reasons: Improved performances and reduced injury risk.
If you think about it, the less you get injured, the more you can train. The more you train (smartly) the better you perform. Especially in team sports, the less players that are out injured, the stronger the team. When the coach has the full squad to choose from, especially the best players available, the more likely you get the results.
