We put together a new video featuring three of our favorite off-ice agility ladder drills to help players develop their quickness and foot speed.

Coaching Key Points:

  1. Knees Bent to Absorb Impact
  2. Soft Landings
  3. Weight on the Ball of the Foot
  4. Push Beyond Your “Comfort Zone” of Speed, but Maintain Proper Technique
  5. Practice Each Drill in Both Directions
  6. Practice Each Drill Forward & Backward
  7. Add a Short Sprint at the End of Each Drill to Increase Challenge
