This is a great stretch to help loosen up your hips and hamstrings! 1st movement (Forward Hip Rockers): bring the ball next to your left foot and bring the right foot back into a split stance. Drop your hips towards the ground then push your hips up to the ceiling while attempting to straighten the front leg. For an additional stretch raise your toe up when you do this. 2nd movement (Diagonal Hip Rockers): bring the ball next to your left foot and bring the right foot back behind your body to the left side. Drop your hips towards the ground then push your hips up to the ceiling while attempting to straighten the front leg. 3rd movement (Wide Hip Rockers): bring the ball next to your left foot and bring the right foot back and wide to the right side. Drop your hips towards the ground then push your hips up to the ceiling while attempting to straighten the front leg. Repeat each stretch and position for 5-10 reps. Let us know how you feel with the stretch!
Taking flight during games leads to some of the most exciting plays on the court, but to keep their bodies healthy it is important for players to learn how to land from big leaps safely. We regularly practice landing drills in many different ways. Here is a progression to practice safe landing position. For those learning good mechanics, this sequence can be used as part of a regular training session. For players who have mastered the mechanics, these drills can serve as a great addition to a warm-up.

Start by balancing on one leg with the ball in the opposite hand. Keep your knee slightly bent. Perform each movement with each leg. Start out with a small reach and if that's easy, then challenge yourself and reach further. Another way to increase the difficulty is to increase the speed of the movements. Have fun with it! Try 5-10 reps on each movement on each leg. Let us know how you do!
This drill works on rapid acceleration and deceleration as well as challenges balance and body control in multiple planes and positions. It’s a great warmup and prep for the ankles/knees/hips/groin. Keys to success on the pivot matrix: start slow and demonstrate body control through each position. As you feel more comfortable and can go through each movement in good posture and control, start to move faster and reach farther.
