Little Speed Demon Program

Fantastic end-to-end course on how to coach your child to run faster. I particularly enjoyed the broad content covering theory & research behind running technique, strength training guidance, drills to improve running technique, and detailed & fun training sessions to put it all into practice!

I think the LITTLE SPEED DEMON coaching course is a great tool for people to learn how to coach individuals to run faster.

The LITTLE SPEED DEMON coaching course was so enlightening for learning how to coach as well as speed development tips for our children. The children loved the program and are looking forward to continuing it over the school holidays. The program is designed not only to help children but also the parents (coaches) with their running style. – Thank you Andrew

Hi Andrew, I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you. My daughter Piper has always dominated middle/long distance events but has never seen success in the shorter distances. A few weeks ago after beginning the LITTLE SPEED DEMON program, Piper won a 70m sprint at Little Athletics. Having done a lot of hard work on her running, she convincingly won her 100m with a PB and beat a competitor she could never pass in the sprints. She is so proud of herself 🙂 Thank you for producing a course that allows us to better our children.

Learning how to coach my kids to run faster has been brilliant!! The SPEED DEMON Coaching program for parents has taught me so much about developing speed & power for lots of different sports.

Andrew has been an incredible coach and mentor for my daughter, Chiara. She has won multiple state age-group championships over 100m, 200m and 400m and has won Bronze at the national age-group championships for the Girls U17 200m in 2019. I can’t thank you enough mate…

Andrew has helped me run much faster than I ever believed I could . Over two seasons with Andrew I have managed to win several masters sprint titles which has been an unexpected delight. Andrew seems to find the right way to get the best out of you. He knows when and how to push you to work harder and then pull things back so you are prepared for the big meets. Amazing… thanks coach!!
