Sprints Trainings in Southend






Putting young athletes on track for success

Our sprints training in Southend focuses on improving an athlete's speed, agility and quickness. An athlete will naturally develop their anaerobic fitness (The ability to generate short but intense bursts of energy) as they train for sprinting.

SS Athletics Southend covers 60, 100 and 200 metre sprints.

Sprinting is a surprisingly technical discipline, consistent of several stages as the athlete accelerates towards the finish line. Our highly-qualified coaches therefore teach the techniques of a good sprint accordingly, such as the correct starting position, the drive phase (acceleration), transition phase and maximum velocity.

Keeping your child's best form

We also place a large emphasis on the biomechanics of running, such as A-skips drilling, B-skips drilling and coaching proper foot placement.
