Default Staying “Away”

Everyone wants to move forward to the ball, but sometimes when they’re already “in position” for it they don’t think of backing away from the line of the ball so there’s enough room to actually move forward. There are many situations where the first step you take needs to be AWAY from the ball.

Have someone feed balls directly at your dominant-side hip and work on developing footwork that gets you away from the line of the incoming ball. One more thing, don’t just get you feet away and leave your upper body there. Stay balanced and get your shoulders up and away from the ball as well.
