Starting Position

Stand to the side of a line of hurdles balancing on your leg nearest the hurdles.
Bend your arms 90 degrees and maintain this angle throughout the movement.

Using your arms and hips to propel you, hop laterally over the hurdles, without pausing when you land.
Reverse direction and repeat the drill with your other leg.
Coaching Keys

Anticipate the ground to minimize your contact time.
Land softly and absorb the impact through your hip.
Do not allow your knee to collapse to the inside on takeoff or landing.
Initiate the hops with your hips rather than your knees.
