Generating success often relies on the groundwork that is laid in the off-season and pre-season. Coach Terrell, president of San Fernando Valley Rush, has put together a new speed and agility program geared for athletes looking to produce at the next level. This program allows athletes to enhance all the skills needed for sports: coordination, agility, acceleration, speed, power, balance and reaction.
The combination of speed, agility and speed endurance an athlete requires is determined by his or her sport. However, regardless of the event, there are several methods of training that are integral to developing a fast athlete. Although developing speed and agility is a long-term process, every step will help you gain an advantage over your competition. For youth athletes this involves focusing on:
- Proper acceleration, sprinting, and change-of-direction mechanics/technique
- Single and double leg strength and explosive power
- Good mobility (functional flexibility), especially in the hips and ankles
- Core stability and body control in all planes
- Speed and agility in sport-specific movements
- Pattern recognition and the ability to anticipate and react to cues
Coach Terrell’s training clinics are designed for the whole family and covers:
- Strength Training
- Power & Plyometrics
- Speed Training
- Lateral Skills & Agility
- Vertical Jump Technique
- Ladder Drills
- Core Training
- Form & Technique
