This relates to a method and apparatus for testing and enhancing a football player's ability to quickly react to visual stimuli. When the player leaves a starting position, first and second timers begin counting. When the player reaches a first reaction point, the first counter is stopped thus containing an indication of how long it took for the player to reach the first reaction point. Simultaneously therewith, one of a battery of lights is energized indicating to the athlete that he must undertake and complete a particular action. This action may represent a cut right or cut left or may require the athlete to throw a ball at a particular target. The second timer is stopped when all the required actions have been completed thus giving an indication of how long it took the player to run the entire course.
