Slide Run Slide Drill

  • Purpose

To help players get comfortable with moving out of the defensive slide and into a sprint and back into the slide seamlessly.

  • Setup

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)
