To force players to shoot on the run with great hip turn and balance.

Description of Drill-Execution

This drill is designed to the correct hip and chest motion for a shooter. Too often a player will shoot the ball toward the cage as he is running past the 6’x6’ cage, thus his body is traveling in one direction, while his arms are traveling in another. Great for pregame warm up!

Keys:

  • Form is important, not speed
  • Shooter must turn hips and chest toward attack opposite the attack feeder
  • Stress continuation of ball movement
  • Players go to the line that they try to pass
