Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Rob Rose, provides you with a drill used primarily in football to test agility, but can also be used to determine the agility of your lacrosse players. This drill can be used as a great way to develop change of direction speed for all players. This drill does not take much space and with several coaches, you could run several different groups at the same time for multiple reps.
Athlete Movement: The athlete will begin in a ready position. You begin timing on the athlete’s first movement, which is to bend down and touch the ground. The athlete will sprint five yards to touch the left line, turn and sprint 10 yards to touch the farthest line, and then turn and sprint past the start cone. The timer is stopped when the athlete crosses the start cone.
