Middle School Speed and Agility Training The Speed and Agility Training provides MS athletes with the opportunity to train with high school coaches. Head coaches have welcomed the opportunity to work with the group of middle school students in the develop- ment of speed, agility and power. Not only are the student athletes receiving great training, but more importantl they are building positive relationships with the high school coaching staff. Athletic Director A1 Lammers has infused a 7-12 athletic/activities philosophy within each of our programs. He has always stressed the importance of strong, well-coached middle school programs; this training creates an early visiori of success that continues throughout all oI our athletic programs. Almost 60 boys and girls are participating in the 8 week-16 session training. Every Wednesday and Friday morning, middle school students wake up and arrive at Norwalk High School at 6:30 a.m. The group participates in a variety of drills and activities that enhance speed, agility and power. Each member will be pre-tested in various categories and then re-tested at the conclusion of the training. Based on early success, there have been discussions of running another training session in the month of July. Eighth grade student Cable Reece says, "The training is tough, but rewarding and you just feel yourself getting more powerful with each drill." Seventh grader Amber Johnson remarked, "The training is challenging and fun at the same time. I never want to miss a session because I love the workout and I know how much it's helping me become abetter athlete." Head Cross Country Coach Michelle Wiedmann indicated how impressed she was with the positive attitude of the group and their willingness to want to improve. Head Wrestling Coach Brandon Schmitz and Head Football Coach Paul Patterson were instrumental members of the training development. At this point, we can say it has been an incredible success for all involved. Updates on the program will be coming at the conclusion of the training.
