The Cannonball

Alternative names: n/a
Objective: To defensively work as a blocker pair against a jammer.
Typical length of drill: 6 mins
Materials needed: WFTDA track
Skill level required: contact level

Description: Skaters are divided into groups of three. Two pair up as a wall and the third acts as a jammer. The blocker on the inside pushes her blocker partner into the jammer, who attempts to pass the wall on the outside. The blockers work on timing the push so they catch the jammer at the right moment. The jammer tries to avoid the hit by hopping to the inside. After two minutes, switch places so each skater practices pushing her blocker, being pushed and jamming.

Additional notes: n/a
