Basketball
Description

Players v-cut their way up and down the court, with their up in front of their chest (ready to catch an imaginary pass).

Take 2-3 paces to the right and (cut) change direction and speed, then 2-3 paces to the left etc.

In addition to this, when players hear the whistle blow they must stop as quickly as possible.

A one count stop is executed. On the second blast of the whistle players can continue to v-cut their way up the court.
