Speed, Agility & Strength Training 

Athletes will encounter many unexpected obstacles during a performance, and in their preparation they can create movement patterns or strength which can be the difference between a win or loss.  While not incorporated in the title of the course, quickness is a component of many sports.  This course does not discount the importance of quickness and does incorporate components, but rather places a larger focus on strength training which science is showing helps athletes just as much.
