Coach with a ball at each elbow, players will close out and slide twice.

1 closes out from the baseline with both hands up, coach has the ball above his head on the close-out, then pushes it through to his right (sweep and jab right), 1 slides diagonally back to the baseline (the first step is a lunge step).

As 1 closes out on the other elbow, 2 starts his close-out, both players slide back to the baseline, 1 stays on the left side, 2 will close out again, and 3 start.

Players repeat coming back from the left side, sliding diagonally to their right (coaches push the ball through to their left).
