Speed Camp

The summer Sports Speed Camp is designed to give athletes the opportunity to gain a competitive edge as an individual and as a team by getting faster. This camp will include the teaching of a proper dynamic warmup and fundamental movement patterns in relation to sprinting. All aspects of speed and agility will be covered. We strive to do this with safety and injury prevention as a top priority.
