Regardless of the sport, the ability to rapidly and efficiently accelerate, decelerate, change direction and move a body segment or the entire body rapidly is a nearly universal and essential element of success. At the Academy of Sport Speed and Agility we focus on perfecting the explosive acceleration that gets you to the ball first, or allows you to hit the line at your maximum speed possible.
My specialised training programs and excellent team of coaches will get you running faster, for longer, through perfect speed and efficient movement mechanics.
We also offer a complete running mechanics diagnosis, and remedial programs, via video dropbox for national and international sports players. Get assessed and receive real solutions to your mechanics issues from anywhere in the world in the comfort of your own home to help you run faster. Visit the Video Assessments page for more information
My Sport Speed for Coaches course will teach coaches how to identify running faults that may lead to injury in their players and implement drills that will increase the team’s first step acceleration and lateral speed. Click here 1 Day Course Flyer to view a summary of this outstanding course.
Young players experiencing growth spurts and the pain associated with this, or older players with technique issues that are causing joint and structure pressure, will also benefit greatly from the ASSA program. Whether elite or otherwise, all players of sports where you need to run faster, or get to the ball first, or to a specific place on the court before your opponent,will find our program of immense value. Due to the nature of our training, we require our athletes to have a basis of functional movement skill and usually commence the program with athletes ages 9 and above.
The ASSA training system has been designed for progressive athletic development in speed mechanics, acceleration and force production (strength) to make you run faster, for longer. Based upon decades of experience and world-class research, we specialise in youth long term development for explosive sport speed and reduction in injury through perfect movement mechanics. The programs are a huge success for all field and court based sports players aged 9 and above.

Ranell was recently a guest on the podcast for Effortless Swimming where she discusses “How to develop explosive speed for Swimmers and Triathletes”. Even if these are not your sports, the content-rich information may well transpose into your sport. A highly recommended listen.
