Speed vs. Quick

Postby CT6MFL » Fri May 01, 2015 10:28 am

I know I have seen discussion before on this. I also think I have seen it in a correlation of 11-Man vs 6-Man. So while day dreamng on the think tank, I came to this realization and wanted to know peoples thoughs on it.

Speed is calculation of a set distance in relation to time. So a straight distance of 40 yards in 4 seconds is 10 yards per second which is 25.45 MPH.

Average speed is a similar calculation over a non determined distance using predefined distance markers to make an average.

Quickness is not a calculation of speed over distance; it is a calculation of rate of change while the body is under load. I do not have a calculation for this but I pretty sure someone already come-up with it.

Food for thought anyway....

John Wooden liked to say..."Be quick..but don't hurry."

not sure if this is what you are looking for, but this is what I remember from my Biomechanics class

acceleration = change in velocity/change in time

speed =distance/time

Velocity = displacement/time

these are all linear equations

the angular equations are stored way back somewhere

Hope that helps

Here's food for thought on this subject, in 11 man ball a quick team can defend sideline to sideline which is what TCU does very well, in 6 man a quick team can defend a quarter of the field but if the speed should break contain its over. Now a quick team can play a very good game if coached well but if that coach is suspect game over.........
