RIVERFRONT SPORTS, 5 W. OLIVE STREET, SCRANTON, PA.
The COAL Foundation welcomes "The Speed Guy" Lee Taft to Northeastern Pennsylvania for a pair of clinics for coaches and athletes at Riverfront Sports in Scranton on Saturday, July 7, beginning at 9 a.m.
Known to most as “The Speed Guy,” Taft is highly respected as one of the top athletic movement specialists in the world. In the last 25 years, he has devoted the majority of his time training multi-directional speed to all ages and ability. He has spent much of this time teaching his methods to top performance coaches and fitness professionals all over the world. Taft has also dedicated countless hours mentoring up-and-coming sports performance trainers, many who have gone into the profession and made a big impact themselves.
Since 1989, Lee has taught foundation movement to beginning youngsters and helped young amateur athletes to professional athletes become quicker, faster and stronger. Lee’s entire philosophy is based off one of his most notable quote, “Learning athletic movement correctly from the start is the foundation for athletic success.”
Taft will spend 9 to 11 a.m. speaking with coaches about developing multi-directional speed, how to create a daily, weekly and multi-week plan, and more speed techniques. Cost for coaches to attend this two-hour session is $25.
Taft will then work directly with student-athletes from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., working on increasing acceleration in any direction, improving change of direction and more techniques in this two-hour session. There is no cost for student-athletes to attend this session, but RSVP is required. Coaches who attend the clinic from 9 to 11 a.m. are welcome to attend the athlete session at no additional cost.
