Get faster on your feet by practicing this agility drill. Agility is your ability to change direction or body position quickly and effectively.
To Start: place tape down in a "t" or cross form creating 4 quadrants. You will start in one quadrant (does not matter which one).
With both legs, jump forward without brushing the tape and into the front quadrant. Then jump back. Next jump to the diagonal quadrant, then jump back. Finally jump to the side quadrant and return back. You can practice this exercise in 30 seconds bouts. 2-3 times.
To progress: Perform this same exercise but with one leg. Make sure to practice on both sides.

This is a great drill that helps you work on power and explosion.
Equipment: a box or bench
Stand approximately one foot length behind the bench. Using your arms and legs, jump on to the box. You should land quietly and with your knees in line with your 2nd and 3rd toes. You can step down or jump down and continue to repeat. If you increase the speed, you will notice that your heart rate will increase thus giving you a cardiovascular workout as well. Perform 3x10 or for 1-2 minutes segments.
