Basketball
Description

Players and equipment will be set up as shown in video clip.

When the coach shouts start, the defensive player will begin fast feet on the spot.

When the coach next calls go, the defensive player will slide to the cone on one side, then back to the other cone until they get to their original position.

Once back to the original position, the other player/coach with a pad will run into the defenders chest where they will take a charge.

Coaching Points

Players need to be tough and embrace the contact.

The players need to make sure they take the hit rather than falling down before the contact is made.
