Operating the Pro-Agility

The Pro-Agility is a test of speed, explosion, body control, and ability to change direction. This drill uses a stationary start and requires 1 timing gate. An additional gate can be added if a 3-point start is desired.
Step-by-step instructions:

- Install batteries in each laser you plan to use.

- Install/open the Dashr app on your phone or tablet. (Create an account here if you have not already)

- Register each laser in the app - Navigate to the "Device Registration" button at the bottom, power on the lasers one at a time and select them from the "Available" list and assign them a number. Write that number on your laser. (This only has to be done the first time you use the laser with this phone/tablet)
- Return to the home menu and select Pro-Agility.

- Screw the laser onto a taller tripods, positioned so that the beam is around hip height.

- Screw a reflector onto a matching tripod and position laser and reflectors across from each other (~6 ft) to create a line to pass through.

- If you are starting out of a 3-point stance (common in football), you can set up an additional gate on a set of mini tripods for the athlete's hand - when the hand moves the clock starts (optional).

- With the laser(s) on, select the appropriate laser(s) from the drop-down menu and press the "Connect" button. If it does not work the first time, repeat.

- Once all devices are connected, press the "Start Testing" button.

- Check in the appropriate athlete (details here) - optional.

- With QuickRun on, get set while in the gate, after 3 sec of blocking the laser you will get a "Go!" message. Leave the laser when you want (time will turn blue - indicating that timing is taking place), and you get a result when you cross the gate again.

- With QuickRun off (option in settings) you will see “Set” and “Reset” buttons to give you control of when a test starts. Press "Set" once the athlete is ready to take off - then you will get the "Go!" message. Press "Reset" to clear the time for the next athlete.
