You don't need expensive gym equipment or a huge space to provide athletes with world class speed training. APTA Credentialed Clinical Instructor Jake Moore provides a comprehensive video on how to organize a speed camp with limited space and minimal equipment. His sequencing of drills and skills provides a safe environment and effective teaching methods to train athletes on the proper techniques for increasing speed and athleticism.
Whether on the court or playing field, Coach Moore will help you change direction more efficiently, jump and land safely, improve top speed running form, and accelerate and decelerate more effectively.
A multiple-station approach is used throughout the video. Using a three-station sequence, Coach Moore focuses on sport-specific warm-ups, body sprint mechanics, and athletic based movement principles.
Warm-ups start with foot speed drills designed to raise the athlete's core temperature to prevent injury and reinforce skill development. Dynamic movements are then performed that enhance flexibility, leverage athletic isometric holds, and increase movement efficiency. Next, the athlete runs through plyometrics, with an emphasis on learning proper landing techniques before learning how to generate explosive forces.
Over 20 drills are demonstrated to work on offensive and defensive strategies for anticipating and reacting to opponents' movements while improving speed and agility. Coach Moore provides detailed biomechanical feedback while demonstrating drills that improve acceleration, deceleration and top speed running form. Athletes will learn to improve their quickness from 2-point, 3-point, parallel stance and many other positions experienced during competition.
Coach Moore provides an insightful analysis on critical coaching points that enhance athletic speed. This allows coaches to critique running form and see how to jump and land safely to prevent lower body injuries. Feedback for techniques and biomechanics of drills is provided to decrease the risk for injuries such as ACL tears, tendinitis, shin splints, and foot, knee, and hip pain while improving efficiency or economy of movement.
This video is a blueprint for coaches and athletes at all levels to improve speed and agility. It can be utilized like a workout video for athletes to do on their own, or easily adapted to work with large groups of athletes administered by coaches at stations. Coach Moore provides world-class service that will give your players a competitive advantage in speed and agility.
