The sample group was male football players from the National Sports University, Yala Campus, obtained from the purposive sampling of 30 people, divided into an experimental group of 15 people trained through a combined training program created by the researcher. At the same time, 15 football players of the control group were trained by a regular agility training program for eight weeks, three days per week, and 1 hour and 5 minutes per day. The SEMO agility test was used to measure agility. All data were analyzed by averaging and calculating standard deviation. The Wilcoxon signed ranks test was used to compare the results of agility training within the control and experimental groups' pretest and posttest. The Mann-Whitney U test was used to compare the pretest and posttest between the control and experimental groups. The research found that the combined training program created by the researcher was suitable. It was also found that the experimental group had better agility than the control group at the significant level .05. Both within the experimental and the control group, it was found that the agility posttest was better than the pretest at the significant level .05. The study results will serve as guidelines for enhanced players, coaches, and those who interested the football in the future.
