Objective. substantiation of training process design for athletes of team playing sports events during annual macrocycle with account for provisions of model and target-oriented approach.
Methods. Theoretical analysis and generalization of literature data; pedagogical observation, testing; video recording; methods of functional diagnostics, modelling; pedagogical experiment; methods of mathematical statistics.
Results. Training process design for athletes of team playing sports events during annual macrocycle on the basis of periodization theory and with account for provisions of model and target-oriented approach has been experimentally substantiated. Models of fitness and competitive activity of athletes and structural units of training process have been developed.
Conclusion. The model of two-cycle training process design for the team within annual cycle has been developed. Major parameters of athlete training and competitive activity have been presented.
