Coaches assume that a player has hip stability prior to running onto the field. However, you will regularly find your players are unstable. This is a more advanced stability drill, but it is a good one for you to try with your players to help with their stability and balance: MB – 1/4 Leg Squat (Juggle).
- Establish stability in the ankle, knee and hip joint, by attempting to put the athlete off-balance with a moving object.
- Quarter squat position (Knee behind the toes of support leg).
- Straighten the arm each time.
- One foot only in contact with the ground.
