Slide Run Slide Drill
To help players get comfortable with moving out of the defensive slide and into a sprint and back into the slide seamlessly.
You need four helpers – whether that’s players, coaches, or even parents watching practice, to stand in the following spots:
• 1 helper directly under the basket
• 1 helper at the left elbow
• 1 helper at the right elbow
• 1 helper at the right baseline extended
Your players will line up at the left baseline extended. If you were looking at the court from a bird’s eye view, it should look like either a ‘W’ or an ‘M’. (see diagram)
