Sprint Profiling And Coaching – Theory And Practical (University of California Berkeley)
This workshop will begin with theory based lectures on sprint science and the assessment running gait. We will take you through the fundamentals of Biomechanics, and how they apply to acceleration and maximum velocity sprinting. We will share in detail the Speedworks approach to profiling whilst giving simple and easy to follow case studies and examples from team sports.
After lunch we will focus on combining the Art and Science of coaching explosive movements, with communication being the centrepiece. While the modern coach must of course be able to understand and interpret the evidence that underpins physical development, there is an additional need to be able to summarise it simply and communicate “what matters” clearly to your athletes.
The workshop will be a fully inclusive experience, where we will take coaches through the fundamentals of coaching acceleration and max velocity. In addition, we will cover how exactly to use gym/field-based drills to develop coordination and conditioning for speed, to really maximise transfer of training.
Within these session’, we will share his framework for exercise selection and cueing, describing in depth, when and what to use to encourage technical change; but most importantly the “why” .
Coaches will initially be coached by Jonas and the Speedworks Team, before coaching one another; with plenty of opportunities to get feedback and guidance.
This is a fully practical section but those unable to take part are welcome to get involved observing, and will have increased opportunities in the coaching breakouts.
There will be limited availability due to covid restrictions. Tickets will be sold on a first come first serve basis.
