New agility tests can discriminate between soccer players at different performance levels

A new study reports that two new agility tests can distinguish between youth soccer players in under-17 and under-19 divisions, with older players showing increased agility. In contrast, other characteristics thought to indicate agility — such as sprinting and jumping abilities — were not significantly different between players of different ages. The findings suggest that specific agility training could lead to enhanced player agility and performance.
