Private Training

The ASSA training system has been designed for progressive athletic development in speed mechanics, acceleration and force production (strength) to make them run faster.

One hour once a week face-to-face with a fully qualified ASSA coach will completely transform your game. Book in for a 4 to 6 week block (invoiced weekly) to create a concrete foundation of beautiful movement from which you can launch your amazing technical skills.

Based upon decades of experience and world-class research and specialising in youth long term development for explosive sport speed and reduction in injury through perfect movement mechanics.

For all field and court based sports players aged 9 and above.

Costs : $99 per 1 on 1 session.

Sessions of one hour duration.

Due to COVID-19 group training is postponed

Group Speed and Conditioning Training Groups

More explosive speed is necessary to get to the ball first with separation from your opponent, sustain fewer injuries, or obtain greater endurance to finish the game stronger than your opposition.

Improve your team’s ability to run faster, first step acceleration, rate of recovery from games and knowledge of game preparation through ASSA’s 8 and 12 week Speed and Agility programs.

More often than not the lack of fitness that your team is displaying is because of the way they are running and nothing to do with 'not enough' running in pre-season.

Energy leaks through poor technique can rob the fittest players of all of their hard work and mobility issues (especially in the hips) can be the cause of little or no force being applied to the ground.

Cost : $308 for the 10 week Term (weekly sessions).

Education For Coaches, Parents and Mature-aged Athletes/Players :

Everything You need To Build Explosive Speed 1 Day Course - Sydney August 2nd 2020


Ranell will take you through leading technical drills to maximise performance in straight line & multidirectional speed.

You will also learn how to identify & correct inefficient speed & movement mechanics in your players that will reduce their risk of injury & increase their on-field efficiency and run faster.

This is a content rich course that will equip you with skills and drills that you can utilise in your programs immediately.

4 Hours of Theory and 4 Hours of Practical Application.

This is Ranell's premier course that she has presented worldwide to acclaim and now available for your club or organisation.

Accredited with ASCA, ACE and ESSA (pending).


Speed Mechanics to Maximise Player Performance. 2 hour Recorded Webinar

Sport speed presenter Ranell Hobson will educate you on physical and technical competencies to maximise performance in straight line and multidirectional speed.

These drills and combinations can be applied to unlock the true athletic potential of your players.

You will also gain an understanding of the science foundations behind explosive speed – how to maximise every players potential and keep them injury free.

This is a 2 hour webinar including videos and it is a summary of her acclaimed full 1 day course. Many people start here and then progress to the full course.

2 Hour Speed Coaches Workshop / Round-table Discussion

Imagine being able to have your coaching staff (coaches, physios and mature players) spend some time with a true speed and movement mechanics expert, discussing your specific needs and requirements, or getting her to look over your plans for speed training in the upcoming pre-season.

Perhaps your star player (s) are constantly suffering from non-contact injuries - hamstring strains, calf issues, quads etc. Perhaps the only pillar of performance missing is first-step acceleration or you want to see where and how to plan your speed sessions into your training cycles for maximum benefit.

This is a great option for your organisation to consider in that Ranell will travel to your club and consult to your staff, adding her skillset to yours for the benefit of the team.
