Integrating Agility into Your Training Sessions

Coaches,

Agility defined= “A RAPID and accurate, whole body movement with change of velocity or direction, IN RESPONSE TO A STIMULUS

In soccer terms = Players having the ability to deliberately move their body position at SPEED in response to either an OPPONENT or the BALL.

I’d like to see more open chained agility exercises that are game realistic for our players.  Example:  Rondo 5v2 where middle two players are trying to tag an outside player before that outside player passes the ball to another outside player.  The inside two players are still trying to defend passes and win the ball.

“Speed ladders” are for coordination.
