March 11, 2015 (Independence, IA) – For the month of March, approximately 80 7-12th grade student athletes are taking part in Mustang Agilities Training. This agility and endurance training is held from 3:30 to 4:00 pm every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at the Junior Senior High School gymnasium.
ICSD Athletic Director, Justin Putz, points out that, “In this program we have a goal of improving student athlete’s speed and agility while at the same time showing a school wide commitment to improving every day. We believe this will lead to greater pride and better results in Independence Athletics.”
The students worked at six stations on Mondays and Thursdays and a different six on Tuesdays and Fridays. All stations are based around improving explosive movements; whether that’s laterally or vertically. Students were randomly put into groups; the coaches made sure the groups were mixed with boys, girls, younger and older students in order to gain the comradery that this training is working towards.
