The motivation behind the investigation was to decide the effect of an exercise training protocol on agility, speed and injury prevalence among University level men basketball and handball players. Forty (N = 40 20 Basketball + 20 Handball) players were chosen and isolated into two groups Experimental group (N =20 10 Basketball + 10 Handball) and Control Group (N = 20 10 Basketball + 10 Handball). Both the experimental and control group endured a common fitness training for 20 min for each season 3 to 5 seasons in seven days for about two months with a steady increment in number of seasonsweek as the training advances. The experimental group experienced an exceptional condescended exercise training protocol notwithstanding the fitness training and control group did not experience the training protocol. The components specifically agility, speed and injury prevalence were estimated by semo agility test, 50-meter dash and injury proportion questionnaire assessment separately. The data were collected and tested from each subject when the training period and statistically investigated by utilizing analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). This examination demonstrates that there was a significant improvement in the experimental groups on chosen factors to be specific agility, speed and a significant decrease in injury prevalence because of the two months of exercise training protocol and has made a truthful endeavor to lessen the injuries of University level men basketball and handball players.
