Curious if anyone here has actually clocked any type of of your 12 yr old athletes top top the 40 garden dash and also if for this reason what were their times on average? i taught mine son how to carry out the 40 today and in general he is pretty rapid from college to the more quickly in basic on his team. His ideal time now was a 6.2. Granted it to be his an initial time to run it and also learning the technique to take off but I guess ns was thinking he was gonna be a small quicker. Or maybe my expectations to be off? i dont recognize I have nothing to to compare to yes, really so i dont know where that stands among his period group. Any type of one have any experience below or deserve to anyone carry out me with any type of pointers to reduced some time off that 40? As constantly its lot appreciated!!!

BTW i have googled this and apparently their are simply tons of youngsters out there running 4.1- 4.5s at 12-15. LMAO reportedly they didnt capture that kris Johnson and RG3 are running 4.2s NOW. Hold on to your seats boys we obtained a up and coming generation of some lighting speed y2kcenter.org players in the following 5-10 yrs follow to the internet..... ::)

Rverybody says they run 4.4 and usually space really around 4.6 or 4.7. Ns coached Shawn Crawford an olympic champion in the 200m. And a ncaa national champiion 100 ms and also 200m man in high school and also he ran a 10.3 100 in hifh axhool at age 18. One of the fastest men in the civilization ever. He to be timed in 4.4 in high school. You need to be very careful that is time the kid and what the is utilizing to time him. Many coaches perform not honestly understand haw come time kids and some combines fudge ~ above times just to acquire the kids to buy program to get their names the end to the schools. Be wary of all the 4.3 4.4 etc. Maybe they are currently what lock seem come be.

I have NEVER clocked a son in a 40 yard dash since that is a MEANINGLESS time. It might work for NFL combines but youth players do not run 40 yards except for the boy who scores from 40 yards the end and, if the happens, either a defensive error occured, a good block occured, or you have actually the next O.J. Simpson.

All my times room 27 yards (Half the width of the field. It's not how much downfield you go. It's how large you go.). That's exactly how you protect downfield runners.

That is a an excellent idea dum coach! I have timed 20s yet never assumed of 27 yds. Learned something now after 40 years of coaching. Thanks

Me also - an excellent idea time the 27...

I have timed my guys at the 40 for years now. Critical year I had a quick team (4 males that ran 5.7s and a couple that were simply under 6). This year ns only have actually 1 child running a 5.8. I have a whole bunch of males running 6.2s come 6.6s. I think that is still not bad.

I am generally pretty skeptical when I listen anyone (even pro guys) running below 4.4 40s. I recognize it is possible, but it is together rare as me being the finest looking male in the room ;D

Thanks for the responses everyone. I definitely get what your saying and do agree with what her saying DC. In fact what a great idea the is. Ns myself, have actually never invest in my players 40 time or bothered really through it in ~ all. Not once. I have a 7th grade team Ive brought up from 3rd so as you claimed its been meaningless because that me. The factor I walk this v my son and am teaching him this and also going v that is due to the fact that he will be trying out for FBUs Team CO in 3 weeks for the nationwide tournament and also apparently this is just one of the points they will certainly be experimentation him on at the tryouts. He additionally will it is in doing the "L" drill together with the broad jump. It is why I carry this up.

Was this top top grass? Or ~ above a pretty rubber track, v a pair the spikes on?

Matt, This was on grass through his cleat on. Ns honestly didnt think around that whatsoever. Obviously he would be a bit faster on a pretty rubber track. Thanks for bringing that to my attention!!
