About the Course
This agility / change of direction lecture has been designed to address the void in our knowledge between strength and power training and functional return to sport. Evidence from the literature is combined with specific sporting requirements to address technique during change of direction, deceleration and acceleration drills to improve force generation and explosive power, and finally landing, running and change of direction drills. The aim of this lecture is to not only improve sporting performance but also address injury prevention.
