Product Overview

Without doubt, one of the greatest concerns among today’s coaches in Multidirectional Sport is the long term development of young athletes and how to improve Quickness, Speed and Explosiveness.  

No matter what your starting point you can always get faster!

Speed and quickness are skills that can be taught and developed , not just something you were born with. By using a number of specialised  training techniques and multi-directional speed protocols, which stimulate both the muscular and the nervous system, athletes can improve their speed, agility, acceleration and quick feet. These techniques have been used with academy and professional teams in the UK, Europe and USA with great success in injury prevention and speed development.
