Agility is the ability to recognize, make a decision, react, start, move in correct direction, change direction if necessary, & stop QUICKLY. Quickly is a time span of hundreds of a second up to three to four seconds in most sports. Agility is not an isolated physical ability, nor is it as general a quality as it is often presented as. It is closely tied to specific sports skill and tactical situations. Much of agility is highly dependent of functional strength, dynamic balance, proprioception, body awareness and vision.
