SAQ and sport specific impact

    This is a topic I've been meaning to post about for a while, but entered my mind again watching many teams in pre-season football training. Teams of all ages and ability right up to professional level teams doing fast footwork, ladders, slaloms, hurdles etc.

    On coaching observation trips to Spain and Portugal, every session I viewed (again all levels) involved an early part of their session on SAQ style work. Living in USA I watched every high shcool american football session also involve this work.

    A quick youtube search has professional teams and their academies with many SAQ sessions.  Yet I've recently read more and more that there is little actual research on how this affects reaction speed, agility, etc in any sport. Yes, if you were training for say an SAQ competition it would of course be specific but is there actually a cross over effect (to football in my case)?

    Are there studies out there backed up by analysis or what is your experience of the impact of SAQ?
