Agility is crucial to almost all field games today. Therefore agility training and physical education have spread its roots all across the world and are an integral part of the school curriculum and sports training.

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. A plethora of exercises and equipment are thus available to ensure the practitioner gets the expected outcome and minimize the risk of injuries. 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.

Agility training cannot be carried out in isolation. It requires proper equipment and guidance. Sports equipment providers work closely with the schools and sports fraternity to understand their requirements and challenges to come up with new and customized solutions wherever needed. GSI is one such organization that provides a wide array of physical education and agility training equipment.

What are your memories of playing as a child? Some of us will remember hide and seek, house tag and red rover. Others may recall arguing about rules in kickball or stick ball or taking turns at jump rope, or creating imaginary worlds with our dolls, building forts, putting on plays, or dressing-up.

But what about children of this generation? Do they have opportunities for play the same as we had? Most likely…. Not & why so?
Because, play time is in short supply for children these days due to so much work pressure & competition in their mind.

Studies says lack of play affects emotional development, leading to the rise of anxiety, depression, and problems of attention and self-control.  When kids get home, their days include more sitting around playing games and watching television. This has led to increased health problems.

It is an alarming situation, kids suffer from chronic disorders; innocence and sweet naughtiness is taken away by heavy eye glasses, fatigue, obesity, asthma, diabetes, weak immune system.

Governments are increasingly acknowledging the need for social policy that supports the development of young children. The Department of Education has come up with policies that offer opportunities which enable all students in Years 1-10 to participate in a minimum of two hours of physical activity each week during the school day. Schools are also encouraged to provide opportunities for students to be physically active at other times.

In fact, we have discovered through different inquiry portal we receive inquiries from schools, pre-nursery schools for our items that involves outdoor games. Consensual activities by sports manufacturers and sports development companies to produce games and activity drills that assist children of all to participate in sports, enjoy it and learn the most important lesson of life i.e. ‘Sportsmanship’.

Now a days there are number of private companies who have come up with initiatives where they not only provide the best sports infrastructure to encourage sports education among the upcoming generation but also provide systematic physical education programs by partnering professional companies with specialization in these fields.
