No matter what sport you play or what your current skill level is, the benefits of speed training will lead to greater levels of success. The benefits of speed training are pretty obvious but I will mention a couple. Most athletes are operating at, say 50-60% of their full potential. A structured speed training program will ensure that the athletes approach 100% of full capacity. Another benefit of speed training is the self confidence an athlete gets when they realize that they are capable of greater things than they gave themselves credit for. And last, it helps prevent injuries.Improved speed carries over to every sport and most athletes compete in multiple sports, so developing speed and agility will create success in every sport.
