TO BE THE BEST, TRAIN WITH THE BEST!
SAQ is an acronym for “Speed, Agility and Quickness”. SAQ training sessions will develop and improve all players' motor skills with and without a ball by fine tuning individual balance and core strength. It is used to increase speed/strength, and the ability to exert maximum force during high-speed movements. Some benefits of SAQ training include increases in muscular power in linear, lateral, horizontal, and multi-planar movements; body spatial
awareness; motor skills; and reaction time.
Speed — The ability to move the body in one
intended direction as fast as possible.
Agility — The ability to accelerate, decelerate,
stabilize, and change direction quickly, while
maintaining proper posture.
Quickness — The ability to react and change
body position with maximum rate of force production,
in all planes of motion, from all body positions, during
All of these skills are ESSENTIAL to compete in
ANY sport or activity
Outside of sport specific training, agility training may be the primary determining factor to predict success in a sport. Sports are not straight ahead, but require changes of direction in which lateral movements are used in several planes of movement simultaneously. Because movements in sport are initiated from various body positions, athletes need to be able to react with strength, explosiveness and quickness from these different positions. Unfortunately, because of the focus placed on physical attributes in sports the focus on off-season programs often revolves around strength training exclusively. Often agility and speed development at sport-specific speeds are neglected or only focused upon during small blocks of time in the preseason. Agility is a neural ability that is developed over time with many repetitions. Research has shown that an increase in speed and strength was not as effective in developing agility as participation in activities specifically designed to develop agility.
The performances of athletes in sports today have dramatically elevated the level of agility necessary for performance success. Agility training provides the athlete with performance benefits: neuromuscular adaptation, improved athleticism, injury prevention and decreased rehabilitation time. A comprehensive agility program will address components of agility such as strength, power, acceleration, deceleration, coordination, balance and dynamic flexibility. When instructing athletes on the execution of agility exercises it is critical to instruct athletes on technique as a priority and speed of movement only after technique has been mastered. by John F.
