The ‘Speed Academy’ Programme for Rugby and Football

The ‘Speed Academy’ programme for rugby and football, can be implemented as either a 4 week or 8 week programme and is based on four core speed and agility modules delivered in 8 sessions, at either your sporting facility or the ‘Pure Speed’ elite stadium facility

The programme can be tailored to your specific speed requirements and objectives for groups of approximately 10 players. The programme is suitable for a wide range of players from development and academy squads through to the elite first team professionals.

The ‘Speed Workshop’

The pure speed workshop is a 6 hour workshop and can be delivered at your facility or the ‘Pure Speed’ stadium facility, and this is our opportunity to introduce your team(s) to some elite speed and sprint practices, that can be put in place to help realise increased levels of performance and sporting success.

The Pure Speed Workshop also gives us the opportunity to share with you and your coaching colleagues a valuable insight into what can be achieved in terms of speed development, and an insight into ‘Speed Academy’. However there is no obligation from the workshop to progress onto the full ‘Speed Academy’

 The Pure Speed ‘Speed Workshop’ & ‘Speed Academy’ for football are promoted in association with Chiron Sports & Media
