The Need For Speed

Tim Powers made a name for himself with his Texas SAQ (Speed, Agility, Quickness) programs. He's now one of the top trainers in the world based in Hawaii. It's not hard to figure out, that speed, agility and quickness are essential components of being a good athlete. Strength is also important.

UT-Tyler is set to host a summer camp that focuses on these atributes. Here is their press release:

The University of Texas at Tyler Louise Herrington Patriot Center will offer its Patriot Speed and Strength Summer Camp 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. July 17 – 22 and July 24 – 28, Bob Hepler, UT Tyler director of recreational facilities, announced.

The camp is open to all levels of athletes 12 years and older. Camp fee is $50 for HPC members and $75 for non-members. To attend both sessions, the camp fee is $80 for HPC members and $125 for non-members. The camp will focus on speed, strength, plyometrics, agility, flexibility, explosive training, core strength, balance, resistance training and nutrition.

“Every sport requires some level of speed or strength,” said Wes Davis, UT Tyler recreation program assistant. “This camp will help all levels of athletes, even adults, become stronger and faster, and reach the next level in that sport.”
