Defensive Stance/Slide 1

Setup: Team lines up in equally spaced lines facing the coach. 

Movement: On the whistle, players slap the floor and assume defensive stance.  Feet shoulder width apart, butt down, chest up, arms out with palms up.  After all players are in a correct stance, coach will point left and right.  Players will take 2 steps on each point while maintaining a correct defensive stance.  Players will then transition to also moving forward and backwards.

Key Focus Points: Keeping correct defensive stance from start through movement. Movement left/right should be a shuffle.  Don’t cross feet when shuffling.
