In this module, we will look at the importance of ‘starting speed’ in the modern game. The ability to accelerate quickly to create or close space is fundamental to successful performance when we consider that the average sprint distance in the game is around 10-15m.
In this module, we will explore ways of developing acceleration qualities in both the gym and the pitch environment, giving examples along the conditioning continuum from isolated gym work to integrated training to emphasise this quality.
This lesson will summarise the key knowledge learnt from the module. There will be 5 key takeaway tips that you can implement into your coaching straight away.
