How to improve your agility
Around the Academy:

The tasks here aim to develop lateral and linear mechanics.

That means movements forward, backward, upward, land, accelerate, and decelerate.

Here are a few tips when training agility:

  • Use of arms
    Arms and legs are directed by brain to work at the same frequency. So training effective arm movement is crucial for speed

  • Both balance and core strength are essential for agility

  • Technique can aid speed
    For example, driving the knee drive forward leads to an effective angle at the ankle and appropriate foot placement.


    We've got a number of tasks for you at three different ability levels.
