To work on agility, speed, and acceleration

Drill Setup

  • Setup 4-6 large tractor tires about 4 yards apart
  • Players grab a ball and line up on one end

How it Works

  1. 1st player in line explodes towards the tire
  2. Player gets his hips low and extends the off hand to drag it along the tire as the player circles the tire
  3. Player continues to next tire, queuing next player in line to start as drill continues

Coaching Tips

  • Make sure players are keeping their hips low and don’t let their feet drift out from under them – this will throw off their center of gravity and make it more likely that they slip or stumble
  • Ball security must be preached at all times!
  • Make sure players are keeping the ball tight in their outside hand as they loop the tires
