Acceleration/Multidirectional Speed, Agility Footwork & Plyometrics Program
New Wave Sports Conditioning & Sports City
Group Sports Conditioning Programs for Acceleration/Explosive 1st Step, Multi-Directional Speed, Agility,
Speed-Strength (Plyometric), Footwork, Balance, and Flexibility
Wednesday 3:30-4:30pm (16-19 year old)
Wednesday 4:40-5:40pm (13-15 year old)
November 30th to February 8th (Session 1)
COURSE FEE: $115/10 week course. A $20 deposit is required to hold a spot. The remaining balance ($95) is due prior to the start of the first session.
Evaluation Testing will be provided during one of the early training sessions. These tests would include obtaining baseline measures for acceleration, speed, and agility. Players will be provided with their own individual test score results sheets to keep for their own records.
A special focus will be on drills to improve 1st step explosiveness and acceleration. These components are much more crucial for athletes, since most runs/sprints during a game average 5-15 yards in length or slightly longer, whereas actual top speed takes 30-40 yards to reach. Individuals would be taught drills for developing proper acceleration technique (correct posture, arm action & leg action).
This program will also facilitate the development of 4 speed components as they relate to the needs of the athlete:
1. Decision-Making Speed-making decisions in the shortest amount of time.
2. Reaction Speed-ability to react to some action by teammate or opponent.
3. Perceptual Speed-using the senses to decipher various elements of the game.
4. Anticipation Speed-predict what will happen before it happens.
