My son is 8 years old and is in his first year of youth football. When he runs you can hear his feet stomp. This is a clear indication that he is putting too much force downward. Does anyone know how I can help him focus on putting more force forward and reduce the amount of force downward? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Go to www.gregorydoublewing.com and click on youth development. I have a manual that I created on youth speed development that will help you out. It goes over teaching run mechanics.
My suggestion is do a dynamic warm up routine with him three times a week...it goes over basic running/movement mechanics and then work on his specific problems.
If you have any questions please feel free to email me and I will give you any assistances I can.
