505 agility test


If you want to measure speed and agility, the 505 Agility test is one of the most effective tools available.

What is the point?

In most sports, agility is typically required when the athlete is moving at speed. Thus a test such as the 505 Agility test is particularly useful as it tests the agility of an athlete who is already moving at speed.

What do you need?

  • 6 cones
  • Non slip surface
  • Stopwatch
  • An assistant
How do you do the test?

The course should be marked out as follows - the distance from A to B is 10 metres, from B to C is 5 metres.

  • Start running from the start line (A) to build up speed
  • The timing starts when you pass line B
  • Run at full speed on to line C, then turn and run back towards the start line
  • The assistant stops the timing when you pass line B once more
  • Rest two minutes and repeat - record the best time

What results you'll get :
