    Early Speed Training

    I just offered a speed and agility program for football that is going to start in January and was surprised at how many parents wanted their 8 year olds to participate in my program which is 10 and up. I had to think quickly what I could offer to these young athletes and I came up with a 30 minute speed and agility class specifically for young athletes. The object of the class is to teach, not condition, but to learn how to run which is very much a neuromuscular activity which requires resting between sets. The 30 minute versus 60 minute differential between the 10 and 8 year old class is due to the maturity level and just a lack of focus over the 30 minute mark in the younger group. What a difference in training philosophy then say 10 years ago. We are starting much younger with our athletes and having them reach important milestones earlier and earlier, but let's remember that they are still kids and that they have a lifetime of sports and fitness ahead of them. The conditioning class starts January 4th at Rockville Fitness on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 6-7:30. For further details please reach me at jimfox@dcemail.com. Look for my message board about teaching running in the next few days. Thanks. Strengthcoach. Schedule an appointment with me.

    Early Youth Speed Training

    Lately I have been working with alot of young athletes. The age at which youth are beginning specialized training has slowly declined since I began strength and conditioning athletes 20 years ago. What I propose is get your son or daughter to work with a coach who is qualified and avoid situations which your athlete is taught incorrect techniques which they have to relearn later. A good way to avoid this is to check referrals and ask the coach what their experience with youth training is. As far as speed development is concerned beginning at an age of 8 can be beneficial in order to catch the youth before they hve been taught incorrectly. What types of activities can be done at an early age to insure proper speed building blocks. Firstly, having athletes at an early age play games that utilize acceleration and agility while competing. These types of games prepare the child plyometrically in their feet to rapidly plant and stride with their foot contacts which is essential for good speed mechanics at a later date. Start the athletes with simple drills such as wall drills which empahsize proper stride position and slowly incorporate moving activities. As the youth developes more sophisticated activities can be utilized but not until the child is ready and has reached important milestones. Take each athletes case seperately and avoid cookie cutter routines because each child is different.

  19. Over the weekend I had an unusual call from all places, China. A friend of mine was traveling in China and ran into a gentlemen who worked for the Chinese Women's National Ice Hockey team and was in need of a strength and conditioning coach. My friend suggested me and within the next two days I had an offer on the table and plane tickets ready to be purchased. I also had some decisions to make. Opportunity of a lifetime or my family. Guess which one I went with? Sometimes it's nice to dream, but being realistic isn't bad either. Strengthcoach.
