What is Lateral Speed/Agility? - It’s the ability to change direction with minimum loss of speed and is part of a comprehensive soccer-specific speed development program.
For effective soccer play, athletes must be able to keep their bodies under control in small spaces and during change of direction. It is important to start with proper bio-mechanics of footwork and multi-directional movement. Once players have mastered the mechanics, they should work to build foot speed, acceleration and coordination. Finally, add linear, lateral and change of direction movements.
