Kurt Dasbach’s Speed Camp: New Site, New Days, Same Success

Kurt Dasbach’s Wakeman Speed Camp — which has trained dozens of Staples soccer players in speed, strength and flexibility — returns for its 13th year this summer.

There are new days, and a new site. As always, Kurt — a noted trainer, in addition to a very successful and longtime member of the Staples boys soccer coaching staff — has new ideas and methods.

But the camp’s core and philosophy — individualized training in a small-group setting — remains the same.

Sessions are set for Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:30 to 6 p.m., starting June 25. With Wakeman turf being renovated, this year’s camp will be held at PJ Romano Field, behind Saugatuck Elementary School.

As always, campers can sign up for the entire summer, or only those sessions when they’ll be in Westport. The camp runs through August 6.

Kurt’s training methods improve speed in just a few short weeks. He focuses on improving first step acceleration, proper sprinting technique, power development, and lowering times for the Cooper Test

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.
