Speed and Agility Drills for Young Athletes
with Wes Parker, CSCS, ATC;
Founder and Owner of Supreme Speed; Director of Strength and Conditioning for the Florida Tarpons (UIFL)

Speed and agility are essential in the development for youth athletes. Developing these areas at a young age enhance the probability of future success. Coach Wes Parker showcases a series of drills that can be implemented this season and in the off-season to help your athletes to become tomorrow's stars.

Coach Parker moves through over 20 drills that consist of lateral movement change of direction, speed acceleration, and more. His instruction covers how to:

  • Develop agility using cone drills with constant changes of speed and direction.
  • Build explosiveness off the start with the Ball Drop Speed drill. (The speed needed in many sports occurs only in short spurts that place a premium on explosiveness.)
  • Train foot quickness and agility with variations of Speed Hurdle drills. (These drills are great for developing quickness in many different types of body movements required in various game situations.)
  • Improve visual concentration and reaction time with the Card Catch and Four Cone Vision drills.

Each drill is explained in detail and demonstrated by young athletes, and each drill can be modified to fit the athlete's age and skill. Coach Parker gives you the tools to improve the skills of your athletes, giving them a greater advantage right out the gate.

Cover: weight room code: technique and safety protocols for success
Weight Room Code: Technique and Safety Protocols for Success
with Andrea Hudy,
University of Kansas Assistant Athletic Director for Sport Performance;
MA, CSCS, RSCC, LMT, USAW-1;
Only female strength and conditioning coach in Men's DI Basketball (Labeled as Kansas' "secret weapon" during the 2011-12 Men's Basketball Season)

Andrea Hudy of Kansas University teaches you how to organize your weight room in a safe and efficient manner, and how to establish a weight room culture stressing safety, achievement and a "result-oriented" culture. Using clear guidelines and expectations, Coach Hudy shows you how to make your weight room a place where athletes can reach their highest goals.

When developing an effective weight room environment, you need to develop what Coach Hudy believes is a practice atmosphere. Hudy as been essential for the success at Kansas University, most recognized her role with the men's basketball program and their success. She takes you through the essential standards that you should hold your kids to when holding a weight training session. Each session should be treated like a practice and each athlete should try to get the most out of each workout.

Appropriate rules will minimize injuries and create a culture where keep athletes are focused on their development. Coach Hudy begins by going through the areas that she believes need to be covered before any student athlete enters the weight room for training. She breaks down the importance of being oriented with the facility, signing off on their manual for training, and having passed a physical and adaptations that can be made based upon results. Coach and multiple student athletes take you through the weight room and show you all of the key areas and procedures of the weight room. From weights to platforms, they show the proper steps that need to be taken in order to have a safe operating weight training facility.

As you watch an athlete demonstrate the lift, Coach Hudy breaks down the difference between an Olympic lift and a weight room activity lift. lympic Lifts are a foundation to explosive athletic movement. Performing Olympic correctly will engage the proper musculature which will lend itself to producing a finely tuned athlete on the athletic field.

The finer points are stressed in order to execute the lift in a safe and discipline manner, which includes the proper way to spot your partner. A competent/well trained spotter will reduce possible injury and is an important safeguard in your weight room. Partners need to rely on each other to make strength gains, while also protecting each other, for the best results. Hudy shows various grips and accessories that she feels are essential and non-essential within a weight training practice.

Every coach who is taking over an athletic program knows the importance of the weight room for straining their student athletes. This video is essential in order to run a safe effective program as you continue to develop your athletes into a top level program.

It is appropriate for all levels of coaches, (our weight room coach here has been at it for 20 years and loved the film!) but would really be great for a beginning weight room coach!Kansas High School Coach
