Abstract

Modern era football with pursuit defenses and multiple offenses has confronted coaches with the problem of developing agile football players. Complex defensive and offensive patterns demand that a considerable amount of the daily practice time be devoted to the improvement of the agility of the athlete. The purpose of this study was to determine and evaluate the effects of an agility, employing an agility maze, two man sled, and reaction drills. Limitations: no attempt was made to regulate sleep, diet, and regular living habits of the subjects, length of the agility training program was five times per week for a three week period, previous experience of the subjects with testing procedures was not considered, the sampling was small due to the limited number of subjects available to the writer, control over outside physical activities was not entirely limited. Subjects remained in assigned physical education classes and were allowed to complete their present intramural activity.
