The lateral hop is a plyometric drill. Plyometric training is used to develop muscular power. The lateral hop should be performed quickly. This is accomplished by minimizing ground time or staying on the toes at all times.


Separate 6 to 12 cone ladders approximately 20 inches apart. Stand sideways next to the first cone ladder. With both legs, hop over each cone ladder. Avoid looking down as you hop. Use your arms for balance and momentum when needed. Be sure to repeat the drill going the opposite direction.
Step 1
Separate hurdles 20 inches apart. Jump sideways/laterally over each hurdle. Minimize ground contact time by staying on toes.
