FASTTT Feet Session

FASTTT says it all, the ultimate goal, be the fastest! How fast can you think, react & move. In this breakthrough session foot skill mastery meets top speeds. The idea is to push your speed OTL™ (over the line) of what you can and can't do. If you can you do 11 rollover tap taps in 10 seconds can you push it to 12, 13, oe even 15... Getting OOCZ™ (out of comfort zones) is the key to advancement in all WABA sessions.

FASTTT™ Feet combines interval training for 30 second periods focusing on Form, Accuracy & Style followed by burst anaerobic interval training for 10 second periods, trying to push Tempo OTL™. The final step in FASTTT™ is to measure Time and Touches to track results. This session also combines speed passing and small sided possession games to move your newly acquired speed to game realistic situations.
