What Is Speed, Agility and Quickness Training? It is a system of progressive exercise and coaching designed to develop basic motor abilities, balance, co-ordination and ultimately complete control of body movement. The aim is to further develop fundamental movement skills so that they may be integrated into sport, leisure, health and fitness patterns of movement. The system is suitable for children and adults of all levels and abilities and people with Special Needs. The major benefit to this type of training is that while improving player’s movement skills the players enjoy it.
