Kurt Dasbach’s Wakeman Speed Camp Returns

Kurt Dasbach’s Wakeman Speed Camp — which has trained dozens of Staples soccer players in speed, strength and flexibility — returns for its 9th year this summer.

Sessions are set for Mondays and Thursdays, 5 to 6:30 p.m., from June 24 through August 5.  As always, campers can sign up for and enroll for the entire summer, or only those sessions when they’ll be in Westport.

Kurt’s training methods improve speed in just a few short weeks. Over the past 8 years, the average camper improved his 40-yard dash time by 14%. The median improvement is an amazing 18%.

Kurt has earned a level 3 certificate from the International Institute of Advanced Speed Training in Lausanne, Switzerland.  For many years he has helped improve the speed of professional, Olympic, college, and high school athletes.  Having played professional soccer in Europe and South America, Kurt is especially adept at developing speed for soccer purposes.

In a recent national survey of high school and college coaches, speed — not technical skill or tactical knowledge – was cited as the most desirable quality among prospective players.
