On Saturday March 2nd from 11:45-1:15pm, PFP will be hosting a High School Speed Clinic for athletes 14-18 years of age. This clinic will teach High School athletes “how to” sprint properly with efficient form by breaking down the top 5 techniques to faster sprinting that have been used by over 20,000 athletes since 2004. In addition, speed is influenced by power, strength, core stability and flexibility which will be covered and discussed at the clinic.
The clinic format will be 3-5 minute short explanations followed by a “learn by doing” format for 20-25 minutes. Athletes will be broken up into groups based on age and developmental level. Premier coaches use a concise engaging style of coaching to help athletes maximize learning and get the most out of the clinic. PFP training methods are rooted in Olympic credentials that started through the lineage of Mike Caza’s mentors/coaches who include Dan Pfaff and Milt Ottey to name a few who produced some of the fastest athletes in the world including Olympic and World champions. Athlete can expect to learn valuable information over 1.5 hours.
Speed is a learned skill and most High School athletes have never been taught how to sprint correctly. With more sprinting efficiency and a better understanding on how each training component is interrelated, athletes will understand how to get from point A to B quicker with less injury risks that stem from poor sprinting form. If you play a Spring sport, this clinic is a good lead in to your season. We will be covering a Bonus section on the top 8 things to do during the season to alleviate soreness and speed muscle recovery so you can perform at your best with greater sustainability.
