In this course, Nick will discuss the basis for redefining the term agility, and provide an evolved definition and rationale for the term multidirectional speed. He will place specific emphasis on the non-reactive and reactive properties of multidirectional speed. Additional emphasis will be placed on presenting models that describe and categorize all movements and movement sequences contained within multidirectional speed. Nick will then present a 3-component model for coaching and cueing athletes/clients based on common errors observed during multidirectional speed. Finally, he will provide program design recommendations and considerations for the Movement Skills- Multidirectional Speed training component.
The multidirectional speed practical will provide focused movement strategies for developing the shuffle, cut, crossover, and drop step. Specific emphasis will be placed on instruction, error identification, error correction, and cueing.
