Need For Speed Workshop

Workshop Synopsis:

Workshop Objectives:

  1. Define terms and compute basic physics problems related to sprints and agility.
  2. Identify and explain the difference between traditional definitions of acceleration, maximal speed, agility and change of direction (COD).
  3. Identify and explain how specific kinematic and kinetic elements relate to the acceleration and maximal speed technical model.
  4. Identify and explain the component and sub-component speed qualities that make up change of direction.
  5. Recognize the “coaching pyramid” and identify the most effective cues for improving the acceleration, maximal speed and change of direction technical model.
  6. Identify and design effective movement skills programming for acceleration, maximal speed and change of direction.
