Mat room uses in football training
Running from the turf, to the hill, to the sand pit, to the mat room for mat work, that’s a typical day of off season work for Cedar Park football players.
The mat room is used for ground based agility training where athletes do drills on command requiring focus and concentration. Every step in this training has to be done correctly or they must start over. It is as much “focus training” as anything else.
