Agility training works on the overall performance of athletes and helps build strength, stamina, flexibility other than establishing co-ordination of mind and body while in motion with control. The games which require footwork and hand movements like football, rugby, tennis, etc. demand high intensity of endurance at a stretch.

Agility training is planned and designed as per the requirements of the particular sport like certain games require more footwork, some require more hand and wrist movement, and accordingly, the exercises work on those muscles, bones, and tissues and enhance sturdiness of the player.

Training starts with light warming up, and the frequency increases gradually. Agility hurdles, cones, markers, ladders, speedchutes are some equipment with which multiple drills are carried out. Lateral jumps in and out of ladder, and between cones, multi-directional sprint, diagonal sprints, Slalom and box sprints for speed and quick direction change, single leg hopping enhances balancing power, backpedaling, push-ups between ladders, crabwalks forward and backward enhance muscular strength of the upper body and lower body, shoulders, wrists, and abdomen. These exercises work holistically on our body while performing the drills and also sharpen our mental capabilities.
