SPEED & AGILITY WORKSHOPS
Covid19 UPDATE: November 2020
We are currently running workshops in Queensland and NSW! Each workshop follows a strict CovidSafe plan.
The great news is that due to Speed being an individual technique, the changes we've made to the programs to adhere to CovidSafe guidelines do not affect the quality of the workshop at all. If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss.
COVID UPDATE: 1 APRIL 2021
Further to the Queensland Government announcement today, our Speed Clinics scheduled for the School holidays in South-East Qld will be 100% going ahead. Please adhere to covid regulations, like wearing your mask to and from training and practising social distancing. Due to the strenuous nature of the workshop, masks do not need to be worn during the clinic. We will continue to follow our CovidSafe plan.

SPEED & AGILITY WORKSHOPS
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Rugby, League & Touch Players - or any field-based sport - who want to learn how to develop breakaway speed.
Speed is an individual technique so I welcome athletes from all sports. Anyone can get FAST - you just need to know the right technique. In addition to our Rugby and League players, we teach Basketball, AFL, Soccer, Netball, Oz Tag, Touch even Tennis Players how to be fast for their game. Acceleration is a very important skill in most sports.
Age: from 9 years, right up to Coaches. Age does not matter as speed is a technique that all ages should learn, plus our drills are individual, so it does not matter if we have a mixed group of ages. Under 9's are welcome if they've played Club sport, but please just send us a quick email first.
"I used your techniques for the school athletics carnival and had great success. Thank you Sonny!"
"This program is freaking awesome! I have tried for years to get my Yeti like 15 years to run, not just with proper technique but to actually run, this guy did it in ONE two hour session. Not only has his speed and style improved, but his confidence when he gets the ball is also beyond belief"
"I would highly recommend this training for anyone that wants their child to become a better stronger athlete in any sport. Sonny is a professional he explains every aspect of training & has a great attitude towards the kids."
"Fantastic program & great for youth development. Fantastic for any sport to improve feet/speed coordination. My kids really enjoy the coaching & interaction with the coach"
"My grandson and his mate attended a session with The Rugby Speed Coach on the weekend. The boys loved it. They got some great tips, exercises, and drills they can do at home to keep on improving their speed. Sonny was great with the kids, encouraging, explaining each drill and what the outcome would be. Very reasonably priced and well worth it. I will be looking into ongoing training with Sonny. Definitely recommend."
"Sonny is highly professional with so much knowledge that he shares in-depth with exceptional delivery to every child, they are all so focused and eager to learn more from him. Sonny shows genuine concern and interest in the progress of everyone he meets. Thanks, Sonny you are awesome our son has learned so much from you."
The Rugby Speed Coach is a qualified Strength & Conditioning Coach who focuses on speed development in athletes, specifically in the rugby/league/touch arena. He delivers the knowledge in a very simple and easy-to-remember style, taking the complication out of the technique, so participants can incorporate the drills into their at-home training regime with ease.
For those wanting some more structure after the workshop, we have developed two comprehensive downloadable PDF training programs:
4-week Speed & Agility training program
12-week How To Build Explosive Speed training program - Advanced Program
Both of these contain all the technical information you need to know, and include exact reps/sets for each drill/exercise, as well as links to instructional videos to make sure your technique is accurate. You can find out more information about these here.
These are available to purchase when you are buying your participant ticket if you wish. Your training program will be sent to you via email at the completion of the workshop.
Price: $60 per player
Wear: Training attire, wear footy boots (or sneakers)
Bring: Water bottle, sunscreen, hat and ensure you've had a good
meal prior to sustain your energy throughout the clinic

What Parents Have Said:
We concentrate solely on the athletic skill of speed. We are the SPEED SPECIALISTS. We teach the same technique that professional players follow to get fast, and stay fast. Our difference is in the delivery - we keep it simple so our players can easily take home what they've learnt and put it into practice (without any expensive equipment!). Our focus is teaching every participant how to get FAST.
We do not focus on any general rugby skills (we can recommend programs that do if that is what you are after!).
The speed technique is not taught at general footy/rugby/touch training. Once you master the technique, you will be able to incorporate it into your own training regime at home to build explosive power and breakaway speed.
2-hour session, jam-packed with practical drills and exercises.
Anyone can become faster - if you learn the correct techniques!
Parents, if you have young athletes, this is an essential workshop to help them develop BREAKAWAY speed on the field to improve their performance.
NEW 2021 EXPLOSIVE ACCELERATION SPEED CLINICS
Specifically designed for Pre-Season 2021.
Focusing on the skill of Acceleration and your first-step quickness.
This is an important technique to master because in most games (all sports) you will spend 90% of your time in the acceleration phase. Learning this technique and putting it into practice with accuracy will give you the best bang for your buck in improving for the 2021 season. And give you the best chance to be the fastest on the field!
We'll be fine-tuning your technique, but also working on the other factors which will improve your acceleration: like power, flexibility, core strength, and muscle activation. Also how to fire your fast-twitch muscles.
If you've been to a Speed & Agility workshop before, this is different and will give you the edge - look at it as the next step to explosive speed.
If you haven't been to one of my general Speed & Agility clinics, don't worry - this is a great clinic for you to start with helping you to master the most impact-giving technique and giving you the skills to train your speed yourself at-home (and without any equipment).
