The Coronado Speed Camp with the Spellman Performance occurred this past week on the Niedermeyer field. The camp was designed to give aspiring young athletes the techniques needed to compete at collegiate levels.
Lester Spellman, a former sprinter, and professional rugby player has been helping Coronado athletes tap into their potential for nearly 10 years. His program combines the science of speed and agility with time-tested training techniques and mental preparation to optimize performance.
The Camp had over 30 participants ranging from ages 11 to 18 years old with athletes from the sports of rugby, football, soccer, baseball, track, and with one non-athlete who came out to increase their fitness. All the athletes increased their top speed, many of them by more than 2 MPH. One athlete commented, “The camp was tough but fun, and I never knew that I could run so fast.”
Coronado’s Fastest Athlete Award went to football player Zane Delcore and the most improved athlete was a soccer/lacrosse player Madie Collins.
The camp was done in association with the City of Coronado and the Middle School Athletic Director Kristen Guymon. Although Coronado Rugby Club ran the first speed camp, it is intended to be a resource for all great field sports. Go to CoronadoSpeed.com to view athletes at the camp and thank you for the support. Go Nado!
