To succeed, athletes in team (field & court) sports must develop two skill sets:
1. Sport specific skill (how to play that specific sport)
2. Athletic movement skill
But most team sport coaches only focus on sport specific skill, ignoring athletic development.
It doesn’t matter why, it only matters that most young athletes lack the ability to get themselves in and out of position to make the big play when it counts.
Because you work with these athletes, you have an opportunity to make a huge difference in the lives and on field success of these kids.
My friend, Dave Jack, is one of the best movement specialists in our industry. This summer, he and I ran a speed clinic for coaches, teaching them how we teach speed and agility to our young athletes.
I want to share a clip from that Closed Door session, where he showcases one of the most important movement skills you can teach your athletes.
Check it out:
Dave Jack will be hosting a special teleseminar called ‘7 Truths About Training Youth Speed and Agility’.
He’ll be covering 7 specific lessons about training speed that we’ve learned over the years and how these
lessons have fundamentally changed the way we coach.
