When to Use

Minor game used as a whole group activity, great as part of a warm up


Line up players in groups of at least 4 and place a hoop out in front of each line.

Players then run up to the hoop and land with two feet .

Then they decide to keep one foot planted inside the hoop and use the other foot to push off and do a full pivot and then run around the group to the back of the line


Add a ball for them to catch when they land, then pivot any way and throw back

Add two hoops for them to land in, one at first, then the second with the thrower

Coaching Points

Ensure players are landing softly with bent knees

Pivot on ball of foot without lifting it Encourage them to use a shoulder pass when passing off

If they’ve got their footwork mixed up make the drill a bit easier by moving the hoop a bit closer.

Ensure they’re sprinting to get the ball
