What coach doesn’t want a faster athlete? Typically the faster athlete gets to the ball first, gets in position to make the play, or wins the race. You may have a good first or second step, but the following steps determine whether you get caught or catch the other player.

Speed and agility consist of rapid back-to-back movements that mimic the dynamic movements that players perform throughout a game. Working on these movements outside of a game helps to improve muscle memory, which in return leads to complex movements becoming second nature to a player.
