This program is designed to develop speed in youth athletes between the ages of 8 to 12 years. The program incorporates all aspects of acceleration and linear speed development while utilizing effective running mechanics. The athlete will receive nightly emails over the 12 week training period, including exercises that are linked to video demonstrations for a maximal training effect. The athlete or coach will need some minimal equipment for this program: speed ladders, cones, and resistance bands, which can be purchased at link below for a discounted price for the entire package. Group discounts are also available. For more information, contact Cal Dietz at email@example.com for group pricing.

Revolutions in Speed Training: Rewriting the Speed Playbook is the results of 3 years of work between Cal Dietz, Dan Fichter, and Chris Korfist. We are bringing you the latest in speed training based on our intensive work during the COVID years when we had time to read, reflect and create and experiment. We will range in topics from the "little things" in the weight room that make a big difference, upper body/Core training for sprints, resisted/assisted training, hamstring development, Torque-Ankle model of foot training, and a whole new group of drills that focus on tangential velocity in sprints. Dan Fichter will show how to incorporate all of the neural drills in a team setting. And of course, we will show how to implement and program. Our goal is for the attendee to finish with a notebook full of info. Stage 1 will be the classes in the screencast formula. Friday night is a classroom experience. Saturday is more hands on at the University of Minnesota's strength Training facility.
