Back to Handling


Groups of 4


Balls, Cones


  • P1 starts with the ball, runs forward and passes to A1 who passes to A2
  • P2 receives the ball and passes to P4 running in the opposite direction
  • A1 and A2 must touch the ground between the cones, turn around and receive the next pass
  • A1 and A2 are under constant pressure to catch and pass, turn and get back into a position to receive the next pass
