Warm-Up Drill #2A: Line Shuttles (Straight & Traffic)
- Have players lined up in two lines facing each other (approximately 15 metres apart), near the shooter positions, in one or both ends of the floor (can also be done lengthwise from further apart for more of a cardio effect).
- The first player in each line begins with a short run forward (one being in possession of the ball), being sure not too leave too early (which can disrupt the timing of the drill).
- *Variation #1 (10 min): "Loose Ball Shuttle." Start with a "stationary loose ball," having players scoop (or "trap & scoop") the ball and then place it back down in roughly the same spot (middle of the shuttle) before running to the back of the opposite line (Variation #1A). In Variation #1B, players roll a loose ball to the line across from them, then run to the back of the line that they rolled it to. There's also the "one up, one down" variation, alternating between a pass and a loose ball (Variation #1C). Staggered loose balls (Variation #1D) is another option as well (See Variation #3).

*Most common error = the timing of the drill can be thrown off if players leave their line too early/late
