Speed and agility training for youth kids ages 9-12?  Have started them off with some basic exercises such as butt kicks, high knees, carioca etc.  Any suggestions on developing a program?

Hi,

According to the LTAD(long-term athlete development), you should focus on speed drills with short distances ( 10,20,30 m). One drill that I especially like  ( and also the kids ) is ''Beat The World Record''

The drill is quite simple...all you gotta do is to give the ''Go'' command, and then the first kid sprints until 4 sec or 5 sec on your stopwatch. Place a cone on the floor where the kid was at 4 sec on the stopwatch. Then repeat 4 to 5 times per person( but not 2 times back to back). The goal is to beat the record by placing the cone further and further away. Be sure...the kids will give their 100 % ! I red this drill in NSCA (Mike Nikita).

Have fun !
