Warm Up 2 (5 mins)

Organizational / Instructions

This is a paired drill.

Players or Coach will label partners 1 and 2.

Player 1 stands in front of Player 2 - socially distanced - facing the cones. 

When whistle blows, Player 1 sprints to line of cones.

Player 2's job is to tell them if they took a step back before running.

Switch over.

Leaning forward slightly

On the balls of your feet

Eyes up and scanning in front of you

 

Progressions / Adaptations

Progress: Player 2 stands directly behind Player 1; this creates pressure as Player 1 won't want to stand on Player 2's feet.

Adapt: Slow it down and focus more on the leaning forward aspect.
