SPEED AND ATHLETICISM FROM 10-13YRS OR 14-18YRS
All other things being equal, the faster player is the most effective, right? Well this course GUARANTEES to improve your speed and athleticism in each and every aspect of your game. This multi directional speed and agility programme is like nothing you have ever experienced before.
Speed and athleticism is the foundation on which skill and performance is built.
They are a vital component to performing any field or court sport. But how does this get coached to our junior stars of tomorrow?
In my experience as a coach in professional sport, it doesn’t.
Speed and agility training may be part of the programme, but it’s not ‘coached’. Instead, coaches rely on drills and session plans made up by someone else from a website or another coach.
But drills aren’t magic. Good coaching is. A good coach uses a drill or exercise as a catalyst for a learning experience.
Multi-directional speed is a skill and should be developed as such. It takes hours of purposeful practice to perfect a skill. Skill improvement requires purposeful practice. You can’t TRAIN a skill.
Rapid growth and physical change can often leave adolescent players with reduced coordination, tight muscles and compensated movement patterns. There are windows in a young athlete’s development when doing the right thing can make or break their future health as well as their sporting career.
At Speed Academy, we develop Future Champions through a seamlessly integrated system of coaching great movement skills. To develop a skill, you must first have the physical capability of carrying it out. At Speed Academy, everybody goes through a Functional Movement Screen to ensure movement pattern issues aren’t holding them back.
The Future Champions programme has been developed to help young athletes fulfil their potential.
As a by product of developing their foundations of balance, speed, athleticism, strength and fatigue resistance, skill levels and tactical awareness will improve. This in turn boosts effectiveness and creates self confidence.
