Increasing the speed and agility of a player is often seen as crucial in developing superior sports performance. However, many traditional models of speed and agility development only have a limited transfer to performance. This session will look at the concept of “gamespeed”, and how it differs from traditional speed and agility models. Using this information will allow coaches to carefully examine and break down the key movement requirements of numerous sports. This will subsequently enable them set up “gamespeed” sessions and programmes that maximise the transfer from training to game performance.
