Drill Type

Footwork & Agility Drill

Purpose

This footwork and agility drill is a general athletic skill builder that will result in better base running and defensive skill.

Execution

  1. Start from a good athletic position.  Explode using the knee and the hip to move the feet.
  2. You can also go from a crossover to an explosive sprint. Drive that knee and hip quick across, bust into an acceleration sprint. Cross and go quickly.

Coaching Tips

  • Stay in your power position as much as possible.
  • Your feet will always follow your knees and hips.
  • Use those hips to get your feet in position to put force into the ground for greater acceleration and speed.
