In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I have the pleasure in speaking to Associate Professor at Edith Cowen University, Sophia Numphius. Sophia is coming on the podcast for a part 2 and an update on the thoughts she presented 2 years ago in her first appearance. I love to here Sophia speak around the topic of agility and change of direction so hopefully, you get as much out of this episode as you did out of the first one.

In this episode, you will learn –

  • Who is Sophia Nimphius (background, education and current role)
  • Testing for ‘agility’
  • How can we detect which physical quality is lacking by performing COD tests
  • Programming to enhance agility
  • Time spent focusing on hitting correct ‘positions’ in COD
  • Developing ‘agility’ in youths & adolescents
  • Biggest considerations when training females
  • Coaching the female athlete
