of speed that an athlete must develop in order to optimize playing ability
- Linear Speed - the average straight-ahead speed sprint is 10 - 12 yards.
- Lateral Change of Direction Speed - athletes must be able to move quickly in any direction throughout a game. The key element is to be able to maintain high speed through all these changes of direction.
- Avoidance - players must be able to start and stop quickly to avoid the opponent without losing any momentum!
- Power & Acceleration - athletes must be able to build to their top speed very quickly and frequently throughout the game.
SSi has 6 areas that contribute to the Sports Specific Speed program
Speed Drills - Athletes will learn form-running drills to enhance linear and lateral speed. A multitude of drills!
Power Development - Power is defined as "the rate of force x strength".
Acceleration Training - The key to winning games is a player's ability to get from one spot to another in the shortest amount of time.
Quickness and Agility - Quickness and Agility includes the ability to react, recognize, and then move in the right direction while maintaining optimal high speed.
Footwork Drills - SSi athletes will be introduced to speed and agility training to improve all aspects of footwork during games. Specific equipment includes (but not limited to) ladders, hurdles, running polls, bungee cords and running harness.
Dynamic Flexibility - Flexibility is one of the most neglected aspects of training by semi pro athletes (especially footballers) but it is one of the easiest ways to improve performance. Stretching is a massive part of an athlete’s recovery phase, if the athletes forget to stretch it can lead to poor running technique, injuries and much more.The age bracket for commencing strength and conditioning is 9’s to 20’s.
