Desert Speed School Announces New Agility Training Program

Tucson, AZ, January 19, 2007 --( Murray Hicks, athletic performance director at Desert Speed School, has announced a new training program, agility training, that helps athletes make razor-sharp cuts, react and change directions at a moment’s notice. The athletes perform change-of-direction drills using cones, agility poles and an agility ladder, which helps build coordination and footspeed development. They will also improve upon speed and lateral mobility to help them become quicker off the line, first to the ball and faster up the field.

“I am pleased to offer this program,” said Hicks. “My hope is that athletes are able to improve their mobility to become better competitors.”
