Our crossover should be specific and what happens at the hip and knee, holding the ankle in our dorsiflexed or loaded position. We cross here not reaching with the foot, arms should stay in tight. We would start this by doing skipping drills. I am going to skip and crossover and I am going to change direction on an audible command.
Now let us come down to the skill that we are trying to improve, simply crossing over. I am going to do a side slide or a shuffle when John tells me to change, I am going to change direction and then I am going to continue to slide until he says change then I change direction and go back.
