QB Reactive Agility

Tailored for quarterbacks, the QB Reactive Agility Drill sharpens vision and reaction abilities crucial for game scenarios. With the ball in hand (or snapped to them), quarterbacks perform a drop back, triggering a React light at random. The challenge lies in recognizing the light's signal and swiftly delivering an accurate pass to the designated receiver before they cross the stop laser. This drill hones a quarterbacks' ability to read the field and make split-second decisions, enhancing their overall game performance.

Drill Instructions

This drill uses 4 Dashr|Blue Timing gates and 2 React modules. You likely already have your devices registered, if not – please check out the Reactive Agility Test as it details both the Blue lasers and the React modules and that set-up is similar to this QB drill.

Step-By-Step Instructions

  • To set-up this drill you will have a starting gate and then a trigger gate (split laser) set-up in the drop-back. Crossing this trigger gate will turn on one of the React modules at random.
  • Set-up two nets (NOT INCLUDED) as throwing targets. This example is left and right, but they could be short vs. long pass, etc.
  • Set-up left and right “stop lasers” just behind the respective nets so that when a football hits the net, the net will cross the laser/break the beam.
  • To get to the QB Reactive Agility drill go to Sport Collections > Football > QB Reactive Agility.
  • Power on all the lasers and React modules, and connect them one at a time.
  • Once all devices are connected, press “Start Testing”.

Running The Drill

  • Check in the appropriate athlete (details here) – optional.
  • Have the football or the athlete in the starting gate. After blocking the laser for 3 sec you will get a “GO” message, indicating that the system is ready and the QB can move when they are ready.
  • Simulate hiking the ball – or have them under center with the ball in the laser – and performing their drop-back (3 or 5 step depending on the routes/drill).
  • When they cross the trigger/split laser you will get a time on the app and either the left of right React module will turn on.
  • QB should throw to the corresponding target, upon hitting the target the net will cross the stop laser and a final time will be presented.
