Coaching for Speed, Agility and Quickness


2 Credits

The ability to generate explosive muscular forces rapidly in order to accelerate, change directions, and then re-accelerate over relatively short distances is essential for athletes seeking a competitive edge. You will learn to develop a progressive speed and agility program that establishes a solid foundation and understanding of movement to help athletes maximize their potential. You’ll also discover how to teach proper mechanics and provide appropriate feedback based on the level of athlete you are training.

You will learn:

  • The importance of progression using a motor development approach when training speed, agility and quickness

  • To reduce risk of injury through teaching proper movement mechanics

  • How to provide feedback and guidance throughout an athlete’s progression
