One of the biggest myths that goes around to coaches and parents is that you can’t train speed…
So many coaches and parents of youth athletes fail to help them develop their true speed, quickness and athleticism potential because of this myth.
These same coaches and parents try to compensate with more skills training and extra time spend practicing and playing on multiple teams of that same sport… even year-round.
Are you making this mistake?
The truth is… not only CAN you train speed, you have a much better chance of developing more speed, agility and long-term athleticism in your young athletes by doing it when they are young and developing.
One of the most important periods of motor development for children is between the ages of 8 and 12. During this time, children are developmentally ready to acquire the fundamental movement skills that are the cornerstones of all athletic development. These fundamental skills include running, throwing, jumping, hopping, and bounding—the ABC’s of athletics. The introduction of the ABC’s of athleticism (agility, balance, coordination, speed) during this period will lay the foundation of athletic excellence for later years.
Training should focus on building them up from a foundational level with exercises, games and drills that not only appeal to their growth and development, but appeal to their curiosity and enthusiasm.
If your athletes are having fun, they will be more engaged. If they are more engaged they will experience more success.
Consider it a window of opportunity:)
