Side step

The ball carrier should:
  • target the nearest defender, running towards them to fix their position
  • change direction close to them by quickly pushing sideways off one foot and changing direction to move in the other direction (i.e. the right foot to go left and the left foot to go right)
  • accelerate away from the defender taking advantage of their hesitation
