Agility training can improve your performance in all sports and a variety of activities. Agility training works on improving your speed, footwork, balance, reaction time and coordination. To improve your agility, you must first develop good basic leg strength. This can be done through weight lifting, sled training and numerous other methods. Once you acquire leg strength, you can begin agility drills with training aids such as hurdles, stepover dummies, high step and speed ladders and polymetric boxes. Being quick and agile will increase your reaction time to in-game cues and therefore beating your opponent to the punch, turnover or game winning move.
