Abstract: Speed, agility, and quickness (SAQ) training has become a popular way to train athletes. This method has been around for several years. Speed, agility, and quickness training may be used to increase speed or strength, or the ability to exert maximal force during high speed movements. Some benefits of speed, agility, and quickness training include increases in muscular power in all multiplanar movements; brain signal efficiency; kinaesthetic or body spatial awareness; motor skills; and reaction time. Speed, agility, and quickness training can cover the complete spectrum of training intensity, from low to high intensity. SAQ drills can also be used to teach movement, warm-up, or to condition an athlete. No significant preparation is needed to participate at this level of speed, agility, and quickness training. Higher intensity drills require a significant level of preparation. A simple approach to safe participation and increased effectiveness is to start a concurrent strength training program when starting speed, agility, and quickness training (Pearson & Naylor, 2003). The Purpose of the study was to find out “Effect of SAQ Training on Vital Capacity of School Children”. To achieve this purpose 50 school children in the age group ranging from 13 to17 years studying in Govt. High School, Kota, Rajasthan State, were selected randomly as subjects. The following SAQ training were selected for 8 weeks of training for 50 subjects. Criterion variable Physiological Variable was selected measured by using Vital Capacity. It was used for pre -test and post –test. The result shows that the 8 weeks of SAQ training develops Vital Capacity Performance. SAQ training develops Vital Capacity Performance.
