Football Agility Strength and Speed Training is a comprehensive regimen specifically designed to develop football players. Our program is based on the University of Wisconsin’s strength and agility program and our results have proven that it works. It is highly physically demanding and is recommended for sophomores, juniors and seniors. Freshmen are welcome to participate.

FAST incorporates speed work, agility drills to improve foot speed, and rigorous weight lifting to develop strength, power, and explosiveness. Since we started using this program in 2008, those players who have committed themselves to the program have had tremendous success. They have become stronger, faster and more complete football players who are prepared to start the season. We meet Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 7-9 am on the football field and in the weight room throughout the summer.
