The CHP Youth Guaranteed Speed Academy
Alongside our Child to Champion youth development program, we run an academy dedicated to speed development. All of our 11-18yr olds play multiple sports most weeks of the year, and it’s no secret that many sports involve running, and without doubt speed plays a huge role in determining the outcome of practice and competition. Whether your child plays rugby, tennis, netball or is involved in track and field, speed is king and getting from A to B faster than your opponent generally means a podium finish. Our Guaranteed Speed Academy runs one night a week for an hour (6-7 pm) at Falmouth Sports Hub for fifty-two weeks of the year which enables all to consistently develop the necessary skills to accelerate, run at top speed and change direction. Many of us take the act of running for granted but when analysed it’s a highly complexed activity which requires detailed postures, limb movements and foot placements to name a few. Every individual learns the techniques to enhance the mechanics of running, and over time are not only able to produce more force into the floor, a key requirement in running, but are able to put that force exactly where it’s needed. The result? A far more efficient runner where performance is improved and chance of injury is reduced.
