Toe Touch










Flier – Ride up with your arms up slightly in front, your abs squeezed tight, and your buttocks squeezed. When you begin to feel yourself coming down is when you want to hit your toe touch.  It is at the very top.  A toe touch in a basket is done by bringing your legs straight up without bending them, pointing your toes, rotating your hip flexers, and dropping your chest into the stunt as your arms hit a T motion.  The reason why you drop your chest is so that your leg momentum does not flip you over.  Remember to hit your motion in front and kick your legs behind your arms for a higher toe touch.  On the way down squeeze your legs together, pull your arms to your side, pull up with your belling button, tuck your chin, and squeeze in a slightly arched position.  As you meet with the bases’ hands, pike and catch for the cradle.
