Shuffle, Shuffle, Kick and Sprint

This ball drill is designed to simulate a game situation in a controlled manner. The athlete should concentrate on proper form as well as accelerating, decelerating and accelerating again with power. Each repetition should be performed at a faster rate. The team should be broken into groups of 6-8 players for each drill to minimize the rest period. Each drill should be performed 3-5 times each way. Perform the drills to one side and then the opposite. Do not alternate the direction.

Technique:

Place four cones approximately 5 yards apart. Athlete will start from one of the middle cones, shuffle 5 yards and back to starting cone where athlete will kick the ball, turn and run past the last cone, continuing in the same direction. The key is to keep the feet beneath the shoulders and not too wide.
