(1) Speed

The moment of truth

(A) Integration of your whole body as it relates to specific sports athletic expression.
(B) Positive acceleration from a stationary stance or dynamic position.
(C) Sustained momentum-holding near maximum speed for the necessary duration required.

(2) Agility

The spontaneous ability to change directions while stopping, starting, accelerating and decelerating

(A) Dynamic patterns of foot movement.
(B) Psychomotor programming-“training the mind and body according to the dynamics of game competition.
(C) Thoroughly understanding the strategy of the sport.
(D) Perfecting the fundamental techniques and combinations of the sport.
(E) Tactical implementations of strategy and techniques.

(3) Quickness

The initial bio-mechanical response of the body/mind to the game stimulus in pure reflex actions and “faster than the speed of human thought”

(A) Stimulus recognition/response – “if/then thinking”
(B) Ideal bio-mechanical staring position (stationary or dynamic stance)
(C) Maximum muscular/skeletal motor recruitment during directional movement (the first 2 to 3 steps)
(D) Involves the beginning of explosive power

(4) Joint Flexibility and Muscle Elasticity

The initial bio-mechanical response of the body/mind to the game stimulus in pure reflex actions and “faster than the speed of human thought”

(A) Proper warm-ups
(B) Performing your movements through a full range of motion.
(C) Optimal hydration and sports nutrition.
