Concordia University Speed & Agility Camp will enhance middle and high school athletic knowledge through expert coaching in a fun and exciting environment. Our purpose is to provide quality individual instruction through techniques and training necessary for young athletes to reach their full potential. Speed training, power and agility are the essential elements for success in ALL sports. With an increased awareness of how to maximize these disciplines, athletes will be able to further their potential in their respective sport.
Each daily one-hour session includes technique instruction for speed and agility enhancement, with fun challenges and performance tests. These challenges are designed to kick-start any athlete’s fall season. Measured performances include: 10-yard dash, vertical jump, broad jump. Each camp session lasts one hour and provides a full warm-up, event instruction, and a cool-down. Instruction includes fundamentals and technique instruction with fun-filled challenges. There will also be progressive drills and exercises each week.
- Functional Strength (Lower body & core) Linear Speed
- Multi-directional Agility
- Power pertaining to speed
- Speed Mechanics
Plyometrics or ‘Jump Training’
Plyometrics are designed to train the nervous system and muscles to produce fast and powerful movements. This program utilizes multi-directional horizontal and vertical movements including hops, jumps, and box jumps. Plyometrics improve foot quickness, coordination, body awareness, and lower body explosiveness, improved landing mechanics for injury prevention and increased metabolic conditioning are added benefits.
Multi-Directional Ground Based Movements
Drills progress from basic balance and movement skills to more advanced running, sprinting, jumping and multi-directional skills. Ground based drills also allow the athlete to react. accelerate, decelerate. and change directions— just like in a game.
Recovery and Restoration
Along with nutrition, muscle relaxation and flexibility exercises will be taught. The importance of sleep and the awareness of overtraining will also be discussed throughout the program. The goal of the Concordia University Speed & Agility Camp is to increase athletic performance on the playing field by improving linear speed, acceleration and deceleration, quickness, multi-directional speed and agility, change of direction ability, strength, explosive power, stamina, flexibility and fatigue resistance (metabolic conditioning) along with recovery skills and nutrition—all essential ingredients for peak athletic performance and health
The purpose of the Concordia Strength & Conditioning program is to foster physical development and athletic skill while teaching the value of personal discipline, character, commitment and subordination of self-interest to the higher goal of team achievement.
