Drills to improve reaction times

are there any drills for faster reaction time? Our centre half is very fast but we need him to react quicker to situations, are there any drills to help us achieve this. I have a couple of ideas but would appreciate a little help!! thanks.

Hi Lee,

Something that you could consider would be having a look at the agility drills in Sportplan. There are plenty which would work your centre half's speed of movement and by incorporating a ball into these drills, there's good scope to build his reactions whilst on the move. 

Also, get him on some tight possession games where the ball is zipping around a quicker. He will soon increase his reaction to not only the ball, but the players around him which will develop him reading of situations as a centre half. 

Hope that helps,

Tom
