This two-day intermediate level course is intended for physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, athletic trainers, strength and conditioning coaches and sports coaches. You will learn the best techniques for improving speed, agility and quickness for athletes of all ages and abilities. Many people believe that speed is something that you are just born with but speed is just like any other motor skill which can be improved with proper training. This course has been designed to assist you in identifying common mistakes in acceleration, deceleration and change of direction. Specific instructions and techniques will be provided in order to help you teach correct mechanics with the goal of achieving a more explosive first step for your athletes. After completing this course, participants will be able to help athletes develop a more explosive first step, improve their speed and improve their ability to change direction at a moments notice. Beginning and advanced training techniques will be discussed in this course. Previous experience with these concepts is not necessary prior to attending this course. There are extensive laboratory sessions throughout this course. All participants will receive a comprehensive manual that summarizes the information provided in the lectures. Research support and a list of references for the training techniques will be included. The concepts presented can be applied to both healthy athletes and athletes who are undergoing rehabilitation. You will be able to incorporate the information that is presented immediately into your training and rehabilitation programs. Participants will also learn how to create successful and profitable speed clinics and sports performance programs.
In my courses, I share with you stories and examples of my successes and failures of working with athletes for the past 21 years as a physical therapist, speed coach, strength coach, and athletic trainer.More Instructor Info
