WSA SOCCER IS TO ANNOUNCE A NEW ADDITION TO THE SIDE - COMING SOON!
SUPPLEMENTAL WSA SPORTS PERFORMANCE TRAINING - Michael Drach
Michael is a internationally-renowned sports performance trainer with expertise in speed development. He spent the first 17 years of his career in Chicago training top-level athletes representing programs like the Chicago Bears, Chicago Fire, Chicago Red Stars, NY Giants, Houston Texans, Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings, Toronto Argonauts, US Olympic Bobsled Team, and US Olympic Speed Skating Team, along with countless Division 1 collegiate athletes and All-American high school athletes.
His experience thus far has taught him speed training and conditioning need to be trained separately. Too many facilities and trainers focus on making the athlete feel tired and exhausted at the end of the workout. True speed training should be done in the most fatigue free state possible. Speed has such a high neurological component to it, and the more fatigued an athlete is during training the less likely they will be able to recruit a high threshold of fast twist muscle fibers. He is most known for his creativity in developing safe and effective multi-directional plyometrics that will not only develop springyness and more fast twitch muscle fibers, but also exposes athletes to controlled, high-eccentric force loads that will significantly reduce injuries on the field.
After a visit to Tulsa where he was impressed by the city, the Titan facility, and the vibrant and athletic community here, he moved his family across the country to join the Titan team and is thrilled to apply his training knowledge and speed expertise to his new role as Director of Sports Performance.
