Each player slides to the corner, plants the outside foot and sprints to the elbow, plants the inside foot and backpedals to the baseline. Keep the hips level when sliding and push off the trail leg. Move in a straight line from sliding to sprinting, don't make a banana cut. Each player should do the circuit 3-5 times.
Option - players compete against each other.
See Defending - Nash triangle slides, Jr. NBA - Defence (closeout, slide, backpedal).
Mike Neighbors - Husky relays - start in the corner, sprint to the elbow, backpedal, slide back to the corner, sprint around a cone at the far elbow and back across the foul line, the next player goes. Can be a team relay or individual competition.
