The Maddogs Football Organization is offering an exciting program starting up at the end of March. Speed School YXE, designed to improve speed and power in athletes, is a training system designed for all sports.
Coaches Karlyn and Kelly Wells have an impressive resume, both of whom were part of the U of S huskies track team, Karlyn being a 5 time National team champion, both bobsleigh athletes and years of experience coaching track and field.
Training with these experienced coaches will help the players to understand how critical speed is as a skill, and when training to improve an athletes speed, agility, quickness and reaction can help make good athletes great!
The Martensville Athletic Pavilion will be offering their facility for this program to teach speed school to bring out the best in players, teach athletes skill set for this critical part in training, and how it can improve greater success in team sports.
“The idea with our program is to help athletes train specifically for speed and power. We help sport coaches that may not have the tools to train athletes to be faster in their chosen sport. Speed can be a huge advantage in sport and it is an important skill to learn and train for athletes. That’s what our program is for, making athletes as fast as possible,” said coach Kelly Wells.
This program is open to Grade 4 and above. It will be run twice a week for one hour for four weeks in total with a tentative start date of March 24th. The cost is $160 for 8 sessions and once numbers are finalized, dates will be arranged.
