Relly Introduction

Evtechs Reverse Elevation Sidestep

It's called 'Reverse' because you end up moving in the opposite direction to the one you first indicated you would be going.

From a standing start you appear to start running in one direction.

You are so convincing that they must move to block your path.

But it was always a fake move.

You have distributed your weight so well that when you land you naturally and with little effort move back in the opposite direction.

This takes you clear of their attempted tackle and leaves a clear path for you to run forward. RELLY!

Watch the example

  • You deceptively and unexpectedly take action
    • so, you take your opponents by surprise
  • You suddenly and dramatically change body posture
    • you persuade them they 'know' where you are going
    • so, you make it necessary for your opponents to react
  • You deceptively use your body
    • which persuades them to move aside
    • and you take advantage of the clear path created
  • You train both legs
    • so you can take advantage of any opportunity
    • and you stack the one-on-one odds in your favour
  • Most players on the field will remain unaware of what you did or how you did it
    • so your opponents begin to fear your ability and "hang off"
  • It is over in a flash and you are ready for the next situation
    • so you can chain techniques together - one after another after another, left or right

Relly Phase 1

Spin, sink

Phase 1 instructions

  • you're slightly crouched, alert, ready for action
  • you have the ball in your right arm
  • you're facing up-field
  • an opponent is near enough to block your way
  • spin slightly on your left foot, as you...
  • step back and behind with your right foot
  • you're now facing at 45 degrees towards the right
  • sink down slightly for a power start
  • you've 'told' them where you're going...
  • and that you'll be going fast!
  • repeat

Relly Phase 2

Sink, leap!, back

Phase 2 instructions

  • sink down slightly for a power start
  • bending both knees slightly (ready to spring)
  • leap upwards and forwards from the balls of your feet
  • thrusting your right leg forwards
  • land on your right foot
  • push off again as you land
  • helping your carefully distributed weight

Relly Phase 3

Spin, sink, Leap!, Back!

Phase 3 instructions

Do the same as Phase 1

  • spin slightly on your left foot, as you...
  • step back and behind with your right foot
  • you're now facing at 45 degrees towards the right
  • sink down slightly for a power start

Then combine Phase 2...

  • bending both knees slightly (ready to spring)
  • leap upwards and forwards from the balls of your feet
  • thrusting your right leg forwards
  • land on your right foot
  • push off again as you land
  • helping your carefully distributed weight
  • to return you to where you started from
  • repeat

All this will cause your opponent to move to intercept you.

When you land back where you started from the way is clear to sprint away untouched.

Well done. You can do a Relly!
