ELLIS GAULDEN, LESLIE KENNEDY TO LEAD ACES SPEED & AGILITY THIS OFFSEASON
The Delmarva Aces are pleased to announce that Ellis Gaulden and Leslie Kennedy will run their speed and agility classes this offseason. The classes will take place at the Berlin location on Mondays and Fridays, and in Middletown on Mondays and Thursdays. All speed and agility classes will begin on Monday, November 29th and run until the end of February.
The speed and agility classes are broken down amongst three sessions per night for 45 minutes each. The classes will help the players with running mechanics, high speed change of direction, foot quickness, reaction time and coordination. It is first come, first served on those that show up for the classes. All groups will be capped at 30 participants. Attendance is not mandatory but those committed to attending will surely see improvements in all aspects of their movements.
