Fall & Winter Camps
Our athletes train with the most effective equipment used in the market today. Our Camp will involve drills to improve coordination in the following areas:
RESISTANCE CORDS AND OVERSPEED TRAINING
Resistance cords are commonly used in overspeed training because the resistance cords are able to:
- Comfortably stretch to double their length
- The elasticity of the resistance cords as well as the different resistance levels allows athletes to gradually increase their overspeed effort
Athletes are seeing significant speed increases by using resistance cords and bungies, but this is not the only improvement. In addition to the improvement of speed, resistance cords coupled with overspeed training allows for athletes to be trained to make quicker changes of direction. This type of training is incredibly beneficial for ball game sports where change of direction and agility is extremely important.
With overspeed training and resistance cords, athletes can expect to improve their ability to change directions at the highest possible speed in the shortest amount of time. This type of training is what separates good athletes from great athletes.
Ladder agility drills are an excellent way to improve foot speed, agility, coordination and overall quickness.
They are an integral part of many SAQ programs and compliment many different sports and events.
Speed ladder drills are about quality and form rather than producing overload. The drills are not meant to leave you fatigued or breathless in the way that shuttle runs might, for example.
It is better to perform these drills at the start of a session after the warm up. Your muscles should be fresh to ensure good quality of movement. And because they will not leave you exhausted you can perform resistance or endurance training afterwards.
Speed training hurdles usually come in a set with several units, enhancing workout options. Athletes will set up these mini hurdles in a row. They’ll then practice fast footwork drills by moving laterally, stepping over the hurdles. Another type of workout is a weaving hurdle drill, as you’ll move around the hurdles quickly. Some speed training hurdles have a bit of width to them, while others are very narrow. You also may be able to adjust the height of the training hurdles in a small range, usually between 6” and 12”. This allows you to find mini hurdles that match the type of workouts you want to do. Cheaper mini hurdles will be made of plastic, while others are made of metal.
Each session is grouped by age and sport and our coaches may designate sessions according to skill level observed.
- Lateral movement
- Running form
- Foot speed
- Vertical Jump
- Fast-twitch muscle contraction
