Agility is a key component of any strength and conditioning program for soccer players.
In this post you will see two simple cone drills that help to teach footwork and body position. These drills are easily adaptable and can be used in training a wide variety of athletes.
In the clip below Patrick McHenry, Strength and Conditioning Coach at Castle View High School, demonstrates two agility drills that he uses. One for baseball players and one for basketball players. Both drill could easily be used for athletes that play other sports. They are not necessarily sport-specific.
Coach McHenry’s drills are just two of the drills he shared at a recent Glazier Athletic Performance Clinic. His entire presentation entitled Developing Speed and Agility includes multiple agility drills that utilize ropes, ladders and cones.
