University of S.A.Q

Arizona PBS is pleased to partner with the University of S.A.Q to present Athletic Coaching Essentials (ACE).

S.A.Q is an acronym for speed, agility, and quickness. S.A.Q training is a type of training that incorporates these three qualities into a functional workout.

Speed, agility, and quickness are necessary for athletic and real-world skills. Think reflexes. Whether we need to gracefully redirect ourselves to prevent falling or if we need to make a game saving tackle, S.A.Q training is the key. 

This is why S.A.Q training is considered a functional training workout: it helps you build up and maintain healthy physical fitness with the goal of allowing you to fully utilize your body throughout a variety of tasks.
