Speed, Agility, Quickness (SAQ) Training

All athletes, regardless of their skill level, must possess the ability to rapidly decelerate, cut, change direction and accelerate. And they have to do this while while reading the field and responding to team member and opponent’s play.

Training includes a wide range of age-appropriate agility drills, plyometrics, speed drills, strength drills, form drills, sprinting and endurance drills.

At Run For Performance I work with your athlete to improve speed, agility, and quickness to help them perform better on the playing field.

Specifically, I work with athletes improve their ability to:

  • perform explosive multi-directional movements
  • accelerate quickly
  • decelerate quickly
  • quickly change direction with proper balance, body position, posture and biomechanics 
  • decrease reaction time in game-play situations
  • improve fine motor skills
  • be in the right place at the right time to make plays
  • improve their athletic mindset, mental toughness and confidence
  • learn to love and adapt to a ‘training’ mentality while keeping it fun and productive

This type of training is perfect for sports like soccer, lacrosse, football, basketball, volleyball, baseball and softball or any sport that requires quick, powerful and explosive movements.

Speed, agility and quickness training leads to faster game play and improved confidence.

At Run For Performance, I work with individual athletes of any level on either a 1:1 or small group basis.

All workouts/drills are customized based on age and skill level.

* I do not focus on teaching specific rules, or ball handling skills. I train for speed, agility and quickness and how those can work into gameplay situations.

Training targeted to support and mimic real game situations

All training is outdoors, weather permitting, on a grass field or track/paved surface to simulate game surface / situations. All movements mimic the type of movement they will see in practice and competition.
