Starting Monday 6th July 2020, in Coleraine, Game Speed Training for team sport players aged 12+. Training will run weekly for 7 weeks in total. Training is open to girls and boys from all team sports and will be limited to a maximum of 6 players per session.

The purpose of Game Speed Training is to teach players the positions and skills for speed, acceleration, deceleration, agility and change of direction. Skills that once learnt can easily be transferred into game play.

Each player will undergo testing and video analysis for speed, acceleration, deceleration, agility and change of direction. The results from testing identify unique strengths and weaknesses for each player.  Training focuses on improving weaknesses whilst further enhancing strengths. This data also serves as a benchmark to measure improvements against when players are given the opportunity to improve their earlier testing scores.

Mastering Game Speed: Using drills, structured feedback and analysis the correct positions for acceleration, speed, deceleration, change of direction and agility will be taught.  Each player will be given the time, instruction and space to practice and establish a foundational level of Game Speed mastery.

Each player will also be taught how to improve their posture and mobility as well as being introduced to bodyweight physical preparation exercises.

Training sessions are held weekly every Monday 10:30 - 12:00 at Rugby Avenue Playing Fields, Coleraine. Each training session is 90 minutes long.  The cost for the 7-week camp is £95 or you can pay £15 per session as a pay as you go option. All payments are online only.
