Speed, rapidity, and instancy are all words that have been used in defining quickness.
One common theme to all of these descriptions is “rate” or the measure of something to a fixed unit. In this case, time is defined by fixed unit. When an athlete performs a task or movement in a relatively brief period of time, he/she can be described as “quick.” An athlete is neither born quick nor slow. Although it is true that genetic potential plays an vital role in an athlete’s physical abilities. But many bio-motor skills that depend on quickness may be improved.

Quickness drills involve foot-striking maneuvers using a ladder on the ground. They also include partner reaction drills that train each individual to move at top speed as a consequence of some action by another athlete. Agility drills may also he resistance devices such as medicine balls to overload the system during training.
