  • Start slowly and build up speed and momentum
  • Weight over the knee with head and eyes up
  • Ball held in 2 hands
  • Emphasise the power step, slow everything down
  • Tell them their chest needs to be hanging over their knee

  • It is an explosive movement from the leg to move off onto the next cone
