Warm up: 

Switch Sides: Divide the group in half and line them up facing each other on opposite sides of the room.  Select a way to cross the space and call “switch!” to signal them to switch sides. Repeat with as many different movements as you can think of.

Skill work:

Box Squats: Set athletes up with a box that allows them to squat below parallel.  Have them stand 4-6 inches away from box. Make sure you cue them to send their hips back and squat until they are sitting on top of box.  Look at their shins and point out whether their shins stayed vertical as a marker for whether or not they sent their hips back far enough.  Discuss the difference between plopping down on box and squatting with control to the box.
