The tests used for assessment of speed and agility were 50m sprint and 4x10m shuttle run respectively. The subjects for the study were 30 male students who were in the age range of 15 to 18 years. The duration of the experimental period was twelve weeks. A 10 stations circuit was developed by the research scholar and the subjects trained thrice a week i.e. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The adaptation period of two weeks was adopted. After every two weeks the number of circuits was increased. Analysis of data was done employing t-test. The t-ratios obtained were 2.88 for speed and 2.1 for agility. Both the t-ratios were found to be significant at 0.05 level of confidence with 29 degrees of freedom.
