Are you just completely sick and tired of:
As a coach, I’ve been there. Sleepless nights before games wondering if my preparation can beat their pure team speed.
But things changed for me two years ago. I was watching our rival high school on national T.V. winning the state championship with my old coach and mentor.
I can’t count the number of times that I said, “I wish that I had half of the talent and speed that they had.”
Coach responded with the age-old cliché, “You can’t teach speed.”
But let me tell you the fascinating background story on how I got to that point:
We all know that at the youth and high school level SPEED KILLS.
The speed gap can be so great that the best plays and schemes in the world cannot close the chasm.
But as any stubborn coach would, I kept thinking that I could out smart and out scheme our competitors.
So I coached harder and harder, but not only got lesser results, but also my players started to resent the way that I was riding them.
It was the longest season of my coaching career. I couldn’t wait for it to be over.
By the time that season ended, I didn’t even want to see the kids and their constantly complaining parents at the end of the year team banquet.
I was burnt out and out of answers…
Since we didn’t have any playoffs to worry about, I did some soul searching as I followed our rivals speed past teams on their way to the state championship game
I began to question my coaching tactics. Was it the scheme? Was it the techniques? Was it the motivation? I just couldn’t figure out how to close the substantial speed gap.
Now fast-forward three weeks to that GAME CHANGING REALIZATION
If you can’t teach speed, then why does Usain Bolt (the fastest man in the history of the world) have a speed coach?
Why do agents for NFL prospects pay 1000s of dollars to take 0.1 of a second off their 40 yard dash?
So I had to develop a system that created faster athletes in an EFFICIENT and EFFECTIVE way with no fancy equipment
And you are right… I am another coach just like you, but this program was truly my life’s work, a compilation of 24 years worth of research, coaching, and experience…
I was blessed with the opportunity to compete at the highest level of academics and athletics at Stanford University and then move on to play at the professional level.
Like many athletes transitioning to the next level, I went from big fish in a small pond to small fish in an ocean of talent.
Because I could no longer rely on talent alone, I had to do everything I could to squeeze every ounce of athletic ability out of my body.
I was forced to really understand the concepts behind our strength and conditioning program and figure out ways to take those concepts to another level. I turned my body into a live experiment to find the most EFFICIENT and EFFECTIVE techniques to maximize my talent. My dedication to strength and conditioning took me from being the slowest athlete at my position my freshman year to running the 4th fastest 40 time on the team my senior year (two of the guys who ran faster than me were also division 1 track athletes, including one who owns the Stanford record in the 100m running a crazy 10.3s)
And along the way, I was frustrated to watch many of my much more talented teammates squander away that talent due to lack of focus and effort. However, this was also a blessing as it helped me define my life goal of not allowing a single athlete that I ever worked with ever waste a drop of their talent.
So immediately following my professional career, I became a coach, a nationally certified trainer, and started a company focused on speed training for youth and high school athletes.
I spent every waking hour studying the science of speed training.I sat down for hours picking the mind my former strength and conditioning coach at Stanford (who turned the team around from a 1-11 season to a national title contender). I spent 1000s of dollars on all the functional training DVDs and even more on traveling around the country to study the top speed coaches in the world.
YOU SHOULD SPEED TRAIN YOUR TEAM FOR SPEED EVERYDAY AND YOU REALLY SHOULD STOP “WARMING UP” AND “CONDITIONING”
This is the #1 mistake that I see coaches making today. Way too many coaches are still wasting two crucial opportunities to develop their team speed everyday: warm-up and conditioning. 20 minutes per practice down the drain…
Warm-up should not be a free-for-all “time to get loose.” Every warm-up should be your “dynamic speed development period,” a focused and purposeful effort to activate fast-twitch muscle fibers and develop proper speed mechanics.
In addition to dumping your “warm-up,” you should also condition with a purpose. “Run them until they look tired” is a waste of time. I put that right up there with “you can’t teach speed.”If your sport does not require your athletes to run long and slow, neither should your conditioning. So stop “conditioning” your athletes and use this time to develop “reaction time under fatigue” and “speed endurance.”
SPEED DEMANDS COORDINATION.
Speed is a highly complex motor skill that requires total body coordination. The arm action must coordinate with the leg cycle and the core must remain stable to maximize the force applied into the ground at the optimal angle with every foot strike. The coaches who think speed is all genetic and say “speed can’t be taught” are the same coaches who don’t understand the concept of speed as a coordinated skill.
You practice the skills of your sport everyday in practice, so you should be practicing the coordination and mechanics of speed everyday as well because in most sports you are running and changing direction much more often than you are actually in contact with the ball.
QUICKNESS ≠ SPEED
This is a very counterintuitive concept for most coaches. Quicker movement of the limbs (often poorly coordinated) does not translate to more running speed. Running speed is determined by the amount of force applied into the ground.
Have you ever seen that athlete that looks like they are running really fast because his arms and legs are moving very quickly, but then you look up and everyone is running past him? This “spinning his wheels” is a classic example of an athlete with high leg speed, but poor force application.
Speed is a powerful and violent coordinated skill. Quickness is like a jab. Speed is full-body force of a hook.
Armed with these secrets, I created a complete football speed training system and unleashed the experiment on my football team.
Despite being an “academic” school, even our average athletes picked up the drills right away and the progress was immediate.
Our team went from losing every game in our league and finishing dead last the previous season to a second place finish with a 4-2 league record.
We also had an athlete accept an offer to play at Harvard and another currently considering offers from Brown and several other Ivy League Schools.
Our running back won the league’s offensive MVP and set the school record for rushing yards in a season. It was rewarding to watch him run past, by, and through the competition!
And if you are already on the plus side of the “speed gap,” WHY NOT WIDEN YOUR COMPETITIVE EDGE?
As a coach of youth and high school athletes, my belief is that we should be competitive, but in the end, we should work together and share information to better the coaching profession as a whole. BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY, REGARDLESS OF THE SCOREBOARD, WE ALL BECAME COACHES TO HELP THE KIDS THAT WE IMPACT BECOME THE BEST THAT THEY CAN BE.
So I decided that it was my moral obligation a coach to share my speed training system with my fellow football coaches.
MY MISSION BECAME TO EMPOWER FOOTBALL COACHES WITH A COMPLETE SPEED TRAINING SYSTEM THAT COULD BE USED WITH ANY FOOTBALL TEAM.
The system had to be put to the test! So I took it on the road, worked hands on with different teams, ran coaches clinics, and tested and tweaked the system for over a year…
After over a year’s worth of testing and tweaking, I had found the speed training formula for every football coach with nothing but a field and a few minutes of practice time…
