There were two famous quotes by Olympic Champion, Eric Liddell in the movie "Chariots Of Fire" in which he stated:
1) "Everyone runs in her own way, or his own way. And where does the power come from, to see the race to its end?... From within."
2) "I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure."
These two quotes tell much about what we do in our Speed and Agility Program. Each one of us has speed potential. This potential is usually faster than we would imagine we could be, we just need to take the opportunity to at it develop the speed. And just like a sculptor who sculpts a beautiful statue out of raw stone, it is the coach's job to identify within each of his/her athletes their potential and teach each athlete the way to achieve their speed potential.
In this process we enhance foot speed, technique, form, arm swing, foot strike accuracy, balance (maintenance of the center gravity over the base of support, it is both a static and a dynamic quality), spatial orientation (control of the body in space), reaction to time (ability to respond quickly auditory, visual and kinesthetic cues), rhythm (ability to match movement to time) and movement adequacy (ability to choose movements appropriate to the task).
OCYSA's Head Speed Coaches are either experienced high school varsity Track Sprint coaches with football agility experience or college Track Sprint coaches who also have football agility backgrounds.
We pride ourselves on that fact that our coaches have decades of experience and are up-to-date on the latest technology and research in Speed and Agility enhancement coming out of the LA84 Foundation ( www.la84.org/coaching-education/ ) and the Olympic Training Center ( www.usatf.org/groups/HighPerformance/AthleteDevelopment/OlympicTrainingCenters.asp ) .
Our Speed and Agility sessions are available in Private 1-on-1 settings, Small Groups (sub-5 athletes) and in large groups. Prices vary.
