Imagine how your football team would perform if every player was 20% or even 30% faster on their feet.
How many more matches would you win?
What difference could it make to your players’ careers?
I’m not just talking about faster running, but being quicker on the ball, more reactive, better at turning and changing direction.
Read on to discover how you can easily coach these skills without having to read a boring coaching manual, or sit in a stuffy classroom.
Faster and stronger like Neymar and Ronaldo
Over the past ten years top football players have become faster, stronger and more powerful. We admire players like Neymar, Suarez, Ronaldo, Bale and Aguero for the speed and grace with which they take defenders on with the ball at their feet.
Players like Messi and Iniesta may not have the same straight line speed, but they all have the one vital component a world class footballer needs: quickness.
By quickness I mean quick feet, quick thinking, good co-ordination, good agility, and the ability to rapidly change direction.
How to get explosive speed
Every team wants players with explosive speed and reactions – it can make the difference between winning and losing.
The good news is that these skills CAN be coached.
Many coaches and trainers believe that speed is something you are born with rather than a skill you can develop.
Football speed is a skill, and just like any other skill, it can be taught, it can be developed and it can be improved through systematic and progressive training.
Turn good players into great players
Average players can be turned into good players, and good players can be turned into great players.I know, because during more than 26 years as a professional coach I have proved it to be true.
My name is Mike Antoniades. I have spent most of my adult life working with junior and senior football players to make them faster and more reactive. I’ve helped some of the top names in world football including Chelsea, West Ham, and the US football team.
Unique speed training methods
My unique speed training methodology has been tried, tested and proven at all levels, from youth to professional clubs.
In tests that were done with junior and professional footballers, improvements were shown in:
- Quickness – in the first three steps (5 metres) players improved by 0.2 – 0.3 of a second (up to 25%).
- Acceleration – the improvement here was between 0.4 and 0.89 of a second over 40 metres (up to 20%).
- Turning ability – players were up to 0.5 of a second faster (up to 50%).
Feel The Speed will guide you step-by-step through more than 20 clearly explained drills and drill developments, including how to coach:
- Warm-up with and without the ball
- Footwork technique
- Quick feet
- Multi-directional speed
- Reactive speed
- Speed shooting
- Small sided games
With Feel the Speed, you’ll discover methods and techniques to coach improved speed, reactions and footwork with players of all ages, such as:
- How to accelerate and decelerate instantaneously to get away from opponents and get to the ball first
- Common mistakes to watch for and correct during coaching sessions
- What to get your players to practice, how often and when
- How to avoid “training boredom” among your players
In an age where clubs are looking for ever bigger and stronger players, quicknessis what allows the small, skilful youngster to stand out and not only survive, but thrive at any level of the game.
Create a piece of magic
Quickness is the quality that allows players to create a piece of magic or get themselves out of trouble.
Speed coaching is not only for elite athletes. It can be introduced to children as young as 5 years old to improve lightness of feet, grace of motion, flexibility, agility and speed.
Feel The Speed will make it easy for you to coach speed technique and see the benefits.
