Dashr | Blue - Operating the
A long snap is so quick that it is nearly impossible to get an accurate hand time. Use our lasers as an adaptation of the Dash drill to get an accurate time. Set-up the starting laser on mini tripods where the ball is snapped from, and the stop laser just behind the net you are snapping to (on taller tripods). Run it just like a dash, you get the Go! message and then snap the ball. It hits the net that then crosses the stop laser.
This drill uses 2 Dashr|Blue Timing gates. You likely already have your devices registered, if not - please check out the Dash Drill as it is the same process.
Setting up the drill
Navigate to the Long Snapping drill. Sports Collections > Football > Long Snapping
To set-up this drill you will have a starting gate "Ball Laser" on mini tripods where the ball will be snapepd from.
Set-up a net/target (NOT INCLUDED) to snap the ball into.
Set-up the "Net Laser" just behind the respective nets so that when a football hits the net, the net will cross the laser/break the beam.
To get to the Long Snapping drill go to Sport Collections > Football > Long Snapping.
Power on both lasers, and connect them one at a time.
Once all devices are connected, press "Start Testing".
Running the drill
Check in the appropriate athlete (details here) - optional.
When ready, place the football in the starting gate aka "Ball Laser". After blocking the laser for 3 sec you will get a "GO" message (with QuickRun on, if QuickRun is off you need to press "Set" once the ball is in the laser and you are ready), indicating that the system is ready and the ball can be snapped.
When the ball is napped and hits the target, the net crosses the stop gate aka "Net Laser" and a final long snap time will be presented.
