Carioca

Thought Process:

Familiar movement for many athletes that creates good tempo in the lower body. This tempo puts the athlete in a situation to find stability in the lower body in order to create direction toward the target. The lower body moving dynamically creates tension in the trunk removing slack. The last step behind encourages a more glute driven movement.

Movement Prescription:

This in beneficial for athletes that need to transition from more stationary constraints that have been used to train the pattern and now need to transition to a forward move. Athletes that do not pull out slack in the upper body well. Over rotational or players with too much slack in their overall delivery.

Feels/Cues:

Move fast. Keep your hips pointed away from the target. Keep your hands together longer.

Common Compensations:

Too choppy of an initial crossover step, simply getting through the first part of the drill to throw. Typically once athletes have done it well one time they get a feel for how they can transition from the carioca better if they move fast.
