Activate players and prevent injuries

  • Line up players along baseline (see diagram)
  • Perform Toe-Walks and Heel-Walks to half-court and back
  • Do 20 reps of jumping drills: Over and Back, Right Foot Front and Back, and Left Foot Front and Back
Tara’s Tips

Encourage players to do the following:

  • Take warm-up seriously as it helps prevent injuries
  • Go at their own pace, so each player is warmed up before starting practice
  • Focus on quickly jumping over line, not jumping unnecessarily high over line—quickness, not height, is important
