Line players up at a 1 corner of the court. Players get in good defensive stance and they shuffle their feet until the coaches whistle (approximately 5 seconds). At the whistle, player opens up to the court by overexaggerating the throwing of the elbow.

The next step is for the players to take a wide cross-over step and follow with a quick rounded step. After this, the player 'Loops' (like a 1/2 moon shape) to the 28'foot line (The old time line).

It is important to stress that the players do NOT take a 45 degree angle to the time line. They must 'Loop' and recover by going beyond the 28'line to a Defensive Slide into the baseline.

The drill goes from baseline corner to 28'line to opposite 28'line

to opposite baseline corner.
