Basketball Drill Diagram: Stay Low Baserunning



Start by having the baserunner start with one foot on first base bag. The coach should stand approximately 3-4 steps away from the runner on the baseline. The coach should hold his arm up about shoulder high to the player. It will be up to the player to get a good quick low start and should not stand upright until after passing under the coaches out stretched arm.



On the coach's command, the player should sprint towards 2nd base keeping their body low until after they have passed under the coach's arm. The key is for the player to stay low attempting to mimic a runner coming off the starting block in a race.


Have two coach's extend their arms 3 steps form the player and 6 steps from the player to make sure they are staying low the entire time.
