Two players start on the centreline, sprint to touch a cone on one three-point line with their hand, sprint to touch a cone on the other arc, then sprint back across the centreline.

Progression - sprint out, backpedal around the cones, turn and sprint.
 
coachesclipboard.ca - 2 or 3 players go.
 
(Variations)
 
- use the foul lines
- dribbling.
 
See Try-outs - Kris Treat physical evaluation (quickness), Physical testing (agility), Dribbling - Change direction.
