Illinois agility run test



The objective of the Illinois Agility Run Test is to monitor the development of the athlete’s speed and agility.

Required resources

To undertake this test you will require:
  • Flat surface – 400 metre track
  • 8 cones
  • Stop watch
  • Assistant.

The Illinois course

The length of the course is 10 metres and the width(distance between the start and finish points) is 5 metres. On the track you could use 5 lanes.
4 cones can be used to mark the start, finish and the two turning points. Each cone in the centre is spaced 3.3 metres apart.



How to conduct the test

The Illinois Agility Run Test is conducted as follows:
  • The athlete lies face down on the floor at the start point.
  • On the assistant’s command the athlete jumps to his/her feet and negotiates the course around the cones to the finish.
  • The assistant records the total time taken from their command to the athlete completing the course.

Analysis

Analysis of the result is by comparing it with the results of previous tests. It is expected that, with appropriate training between each test, the analysis would indicate an improvement.
