Check out this video on YouTube that shows various speed and agility resources any player can utilize.
Speed and agility is very important for athletes competing in most sports and especially for soccer players. Recovery from a stolen ball, jumping for a header, outrunning a defender, and sprinting to an open space all depend on explosive takeoff speed. Speed often defines a player and clearly distinguishes the exceptional players from the average ones. Speed training involves specific strength-based development and plyometrics.
Along with speed, agility is a key advantage among elite athletes. Agility is the ability to change direction at a high speed and under control. This allows for speed to become more effective in attacking players. Speed and agility are integral components in soccer performance. Strength gains along with improvement in reaction time and in overall agility also help players avoid injury.
