The hurdle hop will help to develop single-leg strength and power and correct landing mechanics. To perform the Hurdle Hop correctly as demonstrated in the video, the player must:
- From a single-leg stance, hop vertically and over the hurdle
- Cushion landing by flexing at knee
- Ensure alignment between knee and foot upon landing
Lateral hopping can also be completed in the same manner by adjusting the position of the hurdles. If hurdles are not available the hops can still be completed in the same way.
