How do I use SAQs?

SAQ (Speed/Agility/Quickness)

The SAQ Primers are targeted routines designed to help you improve your speed, agility, and quickness. These primers are intended to be performed directly after your warm-up, and before any additional primers, you may choose to execute before your workout.

The best time to create training adaptations in explosive movements is when you are not fatigued, prior to your training session. This allows you to get in the highest-quality reps, which yields better, faster results. The SAQ Primers are entirely optional and are best used in the months leading up to the start of your season or competitive event.

How Do I Use SAQs?

Each Tier of SAQ contains 6 drills. Choose 2 drills to perform each time you do an SAQ Primer. You should get through all 6 drills in 3 workouts. Work through each Tier until you have mastered the drills in that Tier, then move to the next. As a coach, adding a custom activity using the training editor or using Volt Chat is a great way to prescribe training extras to your team and provide additional instruction, especially with SAQs.
