PRO AGILITY SHUTTLE
Three marker cones are placed along a line five yards apart. The player straddles the middle line and puts one hand down in a three-point stance. The player can start by going either to the right or left direction. For example, on the signal 'Go' the player turns and runs five yards to the right side and touches the line with his right hand. He then runs 10 yards to his left and touches the other line with his left hand, then finally turns and finishes by running back through the start/finish line. The player is required to touch the line at each turn.
The Pro Agility shuttle also known as the 5-10-5 or 20 yard shuttle is possibly the most universal performance measure in sports. The primary objective of the Pro Agility shuttle is to evaluate an athletes speed, lateral quickness, and explosiveness. Unlike other drills, this test is part of numerous fitness testing protocols, including; the NFL and NHL Combines, Nike SPARQ ratings for baseball, hockey, and football and the USA Women's Soccer Team.
