Speed Works are proud to launch Speed Works Speed Squads.
The Speed Squads offer monthly training days for coaches and athletes who wish to know more about what it takes to become a world class sprinter. The Squad Days will merge classroom discussion with video analysis and practical training sessions focusing on technical development and strength and conditioning. These days are focused on athlete development, however we encourage coaches to also attend.
Key goals for the Squad days:
Give coaches and athletes the opportunity to access Speed Works Performance Environment.
Give coaches and athletes access to Jonas Dodoo to learn about his philosophy on speed development, planning and injury prevention.
Provide testing and analysis of speed and power which can be compared across a large cohort of athletes at different stages of development.
Provide progressive modules over the year covering phase appropriate topics and analysis.
Provide phase appropriate insights, reflections into Speed Works Program.
Give injured athletes access to world class therapy teams. This is a separate service that will be catered for if there is a demand.
