Need speed? Are you a skilled athlete who may have heard the phrase, "Speed kills!" in reference to what makes great athletes and great teams? This is absolutely TRUE! You may have also heard the phrase, "You can't teach speed." This absolutely FALSE! You're not likely to turn a very slow athlete into a lightning fast athlete, but every athlete can be taught to run with efficient mechanics and every athlete's muscle memory can be re-wired by SAQ training to move with improved acceleration, lateral mobility, and vertical leaping ability. Speed is also one of the top attributes of athletes recruited to play college sports, and if speed doesn’t increase a student athlete’s chances at a scholarship, it can certainly boost their chances of gaining admission to a wider range of colleges because the ability to play sports at the High School Varsity level and at Division 3 and Ivy League Universities that may not offer athletic scholarships is considered a “special talent” by college admissions.
SuperSPEED Speed-Agility-Quickness training has empowered athletes with the skills, confidence, and competitive edge they need to make their school team, gain scholarships to college, or simply enjoy recreational athletics a lot more due to the improved speed, agility, and quickness and overall fitness that allows the athlete to separate from a defender on offense, defend opposing ball handlers, and generate turnovers with better footwork and explosiveness. Speed makes any athlete’s experience in sports a lot more fun! This cutting-edge training has been giving athletes in Central NJ from all sports and of all ability levels their best chance at success by giving slower athletes the technique and confidence to keep up the pace. It’s helped mediocre athletes get fast and pushed already-fast athletes to become lightning-quick for the past 18 years!
Competitive and/or recreational athletes will improve overall level of fitness and athleticism by training like the professional athletes. Training will introduce high-tech Plyometric training methods to improve overall speed and explosive strength. Athletes will benefit from training with cutting-edge tools such as agility ladders, bungee cords, harness resistance sprinting, parachutes, bounding boxes, over-speed trainers, and core strength training. This is elite-level training -- usually reserved for NCAA College and professional athletes -- but in a recreational setting and at a recreational fee.
Because of the uniquely independent and non-contact nature of this clinic, it will continue to function live and in-person but with strict social distance. Coach Jackson will continue serving as the live instructor and social distance monitor. The camp will take place outdoors in the open field next to the Flag poles, so the clinic will be weather permitting. In the event of rain or oppressive heat the athlete will have the option of making-up the session that Friday or any remaining clinic that summer (or fall, since the SAQ clinics are offered year-round). Cones, hurdles and others markers will separate athletes at least 6 feet apart at all times. No contact will be made between the campers and other campers or the instructor. All equipment such as drag chutes, ladders, ad hurdles will be disinfected after each use. Campers can also bring their own resistance bands, drag chutes, and any other equipment for peace of mind.
