Evaluation of a reactive agility assessment device in youth football players

Hoffman, Jay R.

Examine reliability and validity of this new reactive agility device on sport-specific movements in competitive youth football players.

Blazepod reactive agility device is a reliable measure of reactive agility performance and are consistent with the coach’s perception of the athlete’s agility performance, thus demonstrating construct validity.


The trend noted between the coach’s subjective football performance rankings and the 3-m reactive agility drill provide an indication of the importance that reactive agility with a greater cognitive load (e.g., shorter time for response) may have regarding football playing ability. Further research is warranted in this area.
