SPEED AND AGILITY
Speed and agility are very important to athletic performance. Both involve moving the body as rapidly as possible, but agility also accounts for changing direction.
Speed and agility can help spotlight weaknesses and strengths in sport or task performance which can help direct training goals. They can also provide information about the effectiveness of drills or other activities in practice. It can be used to compare athletes’ abilities with those of similar athletes in the same sport or position.
