Speed and agility program is run by USA Stars coach Kasey Cox, who has an M.S. degree in Kinesiology and personal training certification. This program will include personalized workouts that will focus on soccer-specific exercises designed to increase your speed and quickness as well as strengthen your entire body. What does that entail? Our Speed and Agility program looks to take a complete approach that will teach the players the basic techniques of speed/agility training, increase core muscles through stabilization/balance exercises, increase overall strength, and how to recover from tournaments and games (sore/achy muscles). The program will include 3 workouts a week; 1 workout with Kasey and 2 personalized workouts to do at home. Kasey will personalize each workout for every individual player.
Players will be given 4 workouts to do a week. 1 of those workouts will be with Kasey and 3 will be done at home or in a gym. The players will go through a series of assessments to accurately create soccer-specific workout plans. The workouts will consist of strengthening their entire body through phase 1, which is core and stabilization exercises. Once the players have a foundation built, they will move to phase 2, which is strength exercises and techniques for speed and agility training. In this phase, the players will be improving their overall strength using a variety of exercises that will involve hip complex/core, legs, and upper body strength. Once the strength phase has been completed, the players will progress to the power phase, where they will increase their explosive ability. This phase will be integrated using aspects of phase 1, this way the players’ muscles are not over-training or over exhausted. All of these phases will be used and programmed based on the player's soccer schedule. Finally, the players will all learn about the recovery process using these workouts. For example, when a player has more than one game in a weekend, they will be doing a recovery workout on Monday with Kasey, then continue through their normal workouts during the week. This will ensure the recovery process is being maintained and the players are not overdoing these exercises. The recovery workout will consist of stretching, rolling out, and light-moderate exercises. All the exercises that they will be taught and learn will be soccer-specific.
Price for this program will be $100 per month. That breaks down to $25 per session with me, but the players will be given a total of 12 personalized workouts.
