#36 The DIFFERENCE between Change of Direction and (Reactive) Agility

These 2 must be trained differently in order to develop optimally.

Change of Direction (COD):
Planned movements resulting in a change path/direction by the athlete. This is generally easier and faster for an athlete to perform, however has little carry over to sports such as football where you react to the oppositions movement rather then a cone on the ground.

How to train it (example):
Set up cones at angle you want athlete to run though, and perform as fast as possible.

Reactive Agility:
COD as a result of an external stimulus being detected. for example an opponent changes direction and you mimic this to tackle them. This is more real life and very important for athletes.

How to train (example):
Play small sided games to allow athletes to react and COD based on each others movements
