Introduction to Speed for Football

This certificate course content covers speed and agility training for your chosen sport. The overall aim is to enhance the coach’s ability to understand speed, the various elements of speed, how to improve and develop faster reacting and faster moving athletes and sports players as well as understanding the best ways to integrate speed in the complete strength and conditioning programme.                                                               

 

This Certificate starts by looking at the history of organised sport – the ancient Olympics Games and how from the outset the sprint event was the principle feature of sport at the time. From ancient Greece, we move on to look at the history of the 100m which is accepted as the event which produces the world’s fastest human being. This study involves a close examination of the development of sprinting and as well as an assessment of training methods for speed over the years as well as looking at the emergence of the Afro-Caribbean athlete.

Football as with other field and court sports should be regarded as a “speed and skill sport” and while we know that there is a need for endurance training of some dimension in order that players are conditioned to last a game of high intensity the main emphasis should be on developing the speed potential of the players.
