The Speed Team
Speedandagility.com.au provides a comprehensive sprinting program through quality coaching and professional service that will benefit children aged between 6-18 years old, both boys and girls who participate in team and individual sports.
My goal is for your son and daughter to achieve maximal gains in speed by being taught proper warm up, stretching technique’s, bio mechanical drills, plyometrics, sport specific drills, core strength exercises, nutritional information, weight program’s designed to improve power and strength for speed gains, to be shown the different phases of sprinting and to improve multi-directional speed and overall agility.
All children will be given time trials, a video analysis and report of their sprinting technique and I make a point of watching all my children play there specific sports so I can identify areas of improvement required.
I also am affiliated with the best Sports Medicine Doctors, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, Nutritionists and Podiatrists that this Country has to offer.
This programme has evolved from my wide and varied experiences in training elite athletes for 23 years. I am extremely passionate about the importance speed plays on the sporting field.
Speed can make a difference in any sport, there is no substitute for it and it can’t be defended against. It’s an understated asset that can be the spring board for any sporting success.
Remember ‘Speed Rules’
