The anatomy of a team sports speed session

Team sports require a mix of physical qualities to be trained concurrently due to the performance requirements, but one stands out above the others: speed. Speed is often the difference between elite and sub-elite teams.

Therefore, there should be an emphasis on training speed “in” within a structured training period.
