I've been training high school athletes for several years in oly lifting, speed, agility, etc. I have been asked to work with youth softball players (ages 8-12) on speed and footwork. How should I set up training for them that will progressively improve speed and agility? Do I take the same approach as I do with HS kids, but simplify? Thanks

yes, i would take the same approach but understand that these kids motor patterns maybe somewhat challenged at this age. i do lots of lateral speed and agility stuff with kids of all ages and treat them no different i just do not expect as much coordination in the beginning, but do see lots of improvement as we continue to work.

good luck,
