Speed is one of the biggest things field hockey coaches look for in their players. They want athletes able to push themselves during the game, quickly blowing past a defender or sprinting to defend. Peal Sports Performance Coaching aims to help field hockey players improve their multidirectional speed, first-step acceleration, and mobility required to play the sport. I utilize a variety of tools and equipment, including motion capture software, to analyze running, shooting, dribbling and cutting mechanics.
Our coaching service is dedicated to teaching athletes how to move efficiently, increase speed and improve endurance, by emphasizing the proper hierarchical relationship of all forces interacting during activity. Improved movement proficiency has the most significant effect on speed and injury potential. All athletic movements – running, jumping, cycling, swimming, etc. – are a product of the efficient use of gravitational torque, muscular elasticity, ground reaction force, and neuromuscular activation to achieve motion.
Peal Sports Performance Coaching aims to focus on preventing overuse injuries, a long-standing concern for FH players. The skills learned in moving better, translate well into dribbling and shooting technique.
