ATH 909 - Speed Training for Sports

Andrew Herrick, PhD, CHES

Many athletes and coaches believe the myth that "speed is a gift you’re either born with or without." They don’t realize that there really are effective methods to run faster. This course will present easy-to-learn techniques which coaches can apply to any sport setting. Participants will learn about a number of drills that have been proven to develop speed and the reasons why they are so effective. This course will introduce four components that determine a student athlete’s ability to increase speed. Participants will learn how to assess their student athlete’s techniques in terms of these components of speed. This course will also cover tests that can be used to detect errors in running form and ways of correcting the problems. Finally, participants will learn how to perform specific drills and how to fit speed training into an overall training program.
