summary: Part 1 of this 2-part article looks at how taking a motor learning-based approach to locomotive agility can assist in setting up a long-term agility development program. It outlines a system in which agility can be deconstructed into target movement patterns and movement mechanics, each with their target function. These classifications are then used in the construction of the development program. The article also highlights how motor learning theories can be applied to the structure of agility sessions.
