Speed and agility

This module introduces key physical attributes required to play rugby; speed and agility, and details various methods and exercises used to train them.

Whilst speed and agility are both necessary, it is important to note they are not the same and as a result they both require different training stimulus.

By the end of this module the coach should have an increased awareness of speed and agility and their important for rugby. The coach should also be able to implement basic speed and agility drills and exercises to improve their players’ performance.
