The exercise trains the players’ take-off with legs together both forward, backward, and to the sides. The players’ centre of gravity, balance, and the active arm pull are the focus points in this exercise in order to - in time - master a good take-off with legs together.
Allow the players to explore the hoop. You could start out with a free task sounding: How can you - with your legs together - jump out of and into the hoop? Now, the players can share their experiences in order to improve the movements connected to take-off with legs together. To vary the exercise the players could swap hoops at a given signal.
