SAQ

Overview

Speed has become the most desired skill in the game soccer.  The good news about this developmental focus is the fact that speed is a skill that can be learned through technique training, repetition, fun and a systematic training program. The Seattle United Speed, Agility, Quickness (SAQ) program will help players build the skills, habits, mentality and technical foundation necessary to achieve a new level of soccer speed and control, as well as game day success and personal achievement.

Our New Explosive SAQ Training Program includes 8 weeks of:

  • Acceleration and Change of Direction
  • Resistance Band Training
  • Plyometric (jump training)
  • Core/Body Weight Strength Training
  • Mindset of Explosive Speed during competition

All of these subject areas will be covered in a fun, yet challenging, environment!

*Programs Refund Policy: refunds will be awarded only when (a) a player is injured and is unable to return to the program (a signed physician’s note required); (b) a family moves beyond a 50 mile radius of club headquarters, or (c) when a refund request is made one week prior to that start of the program’s first session.
