The Physical Medicine Department of Memorial Hospital is offering a speed and agility clinic designed to work with individuals to increase speed, explosion, stamina and balance.
Each session will be taught in a group setting with exercises and drills designed to help develop and improve muscular strength, endurance and flexibility as well as working on core balance. The clinic is open to students in grades eight to 12, athletes and non-athletes. The participants will work on various drills at their own individual skill level to ensure quality performance. Each clinic will have a different focus.
The instructors of the speed and agility clinic are certified in physical therapy, athletic training, strength and conditioning as well as having the experience and knowledge throughout their careers in order to lead a successful clinic.
The speed and agility clinic will begin with individuals being evaluated in the vertical jump, 40-yard dash and reaction times. Each session will then focus on the participants by helping decrease the occurrence of injuries as well as working on lateral speed, vertical speed, footwork and plyometrics. Participants will work with equipment such as agility ladders, speed hurdles, parachutes and resistance bands.
The clinic will be offered at the Fremont Recreation Department Complex, located at 600 St. Joseph St. every Saturday, from 8 to 9:30 a.m. through April 4. Cost for participating in the clinic is $60 and registration is not limited.
