Develop Change of Direction Speed with this Agility Drill!

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Tuesday, June 10, 2014 - Leave a Comment

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.

Pro Agility (5-10-5)

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.

Teaching Points:

  • Each time the athlete touches a line, they must turn their body to face the coach.
  • An alternative is to have the athlete start the drill going in the opposite direction to see if there is a time difference in direction.

The previous clip can be seen on Championship Productions’ DVD “Testing and Evaluation for Lacrosse Players.” View the latest videos on Strength & Conditioning for Lacrosse.
