The “Figure 8” Circle Footwork Drill

The Figure 8 is something that you should incorporate into your practice plan every day. It is fantastic drill for quick footwork, that uses PVC pipes that are made into 2 circles, and your players will basically run in a figure 8 pattern around the PVC circle route that you have created.

However, when the players run the figure eight, they are taught several things:

1. Stay low to the ground, keep your inside shoulder low
2. Use short choppy quick steps
3. Do not put your inside hand down on the ground
4. Maintain arm control (no flailing arms)
5. Be quick and under control
6. Make sure there are no false steps at the start
7. Start in a good hit position
