Event description

Description

Speed can be difficult to develop especially if we create a fear of mistakes in our players. Sometimes continually shouting “faster, faster, faster” works but often coaches and players need a greater understanding of what they are trying to achieve. In Hurling there are 6 types of Speed.

  1. Foot Speed
  2. Hand Speed
  3. Eye Speed
  4. Mind Speed
  5. Reaction Speed
  6. Stroke or Kicking Speed

The aim of the training workshop is to offer coaches in-depth practical ideas on how to develop the six types of speed :

  • Implement advanced routines with the emphasis on quick handling.
  • Set out conditioned games that encourage speed of thought.
  • Learn how to change direction in a split second and react to in-game dynamics instantly and explosively.
  • Provide exercise to help improve peripheral vision to help enhance decision-making
  • Highlight the importance of being strong on the ball
