The plyometric training program was given to the football players. The protocol was of four weeks which consisted six sessions per week.
Results: When plyometric training was given to the collegiate football players the result showed Mean of time duration before plyometric training was 10.94 with standard deviation of 1.360 and post plyometric training mean was 10.25 with standard deviation of 1.007. The mean difference which was calculated as 0.6933. Paired t-test was used to analyse the data with p value 0.003, which is considered as extremely significant. Hence plyometric training improve agility in football players.
