  1. Run towards the defender.
  2. Change direction by veering away into the outside space.
  3. Accelerate to take advantage of the defender(s) hesitation. With the attacking player running towards them, the defenders are forced to slow down to make a tackle. The player changes direction close enough to commit yet avoid the defender.
  4. To prevent the defender from recovering, it is important to accelerate away as fast as possible. The sidestep and swerve are two techniques. All players should be encouraged to use natural flair and ability.
  5. Both the sidestep and swerve can be combined with a change of speed/pace and a body feint.
