Basketball athletes can also train under an Acceleration program with their club or academy. We even offer distance programs through online programs.You can have a look at the sample we’ve provided below but basically our basketball specific speed, agility and strength training includes everything you or your club needs.  This includes elements like: dynamic warm-ups, conditioning, foot speed and agility drills (ladders, cones, etc) and weight training.  Our coaches also  monitor your movement patterns to ensure that you are stable and mechanically moving properly.

An Acceleration Training Program typically includes:

Testing Session
Each athlete is tested to measure speed, agility, strength, power and vertical jump.  A video analysis is also conducted to find immediate ways to improve your running form.  This testing session also enables your coach to detect any instabilities you may have in your form that could be holding you back or heading you towards a possible injury.  The result of this testing session is a program written specifically for you and your goals.

Specifically we test:
– Anthropometrics (Height, Weight)   Specifically we test:- Function ROM/Manual Muscle Tests (eg Scapula Winging, Dorsiflexion, Prone Shoulder Elevation, etc.)
– Power (Vertical Jump, Medicine Ball Overhead Throw)
– Speed & Agility (20m Dash, Pro-shuttle)
