S.A.Q (Speed, Agility, Quickness)

Overview: In soccer, especially at the higher levels and age groups, your first two steps in any direction can make all the difference. When your first two steps are faster, you win more 50/50 challenges, you are able to get in front of that defender or attacker to win the ball cleanly, you beat more defenders 1 v 1 and you defend better in 1 v 1 situations. One of the main goals of our SAQ training is to improve the pace and explosiveness of those first two steps for all of our players. That means recognizing changes faster, making faster decisions in response, and acting on those decisions faster.

Definition: Speed = straight line A to B in shortest time; Agility = change directions faster (more valuable than speed); Quickness = awareness + decision making, responding to dynamic situations faster.

Most commonly used equipment: ladders, hurdles, cones, belt trainers, rings, balance pods, foam pads
