Organization:

2 groups of 6 or 7 set up as shown, with each group split in to two lines facing each other approximately 12 to 15 yds away

Instructions:

players will either dribble across the area to give the ball to the next player in the other line, or pass across the area to the next player (each example is shown)

once the first player has played the ball to the next player in the opposite line (by dribbling or passing) he runs out to the 3 cones on the side of the area and side-shuffles to slalom through the cones,

once through the 3 cones the player will perform the dynamic movment (i.e. knees up, skips, etc.) to the next cone then get back in the nearest line

the next receiving player waits until the ball reaches him, then repeats in the opposite direction

Coaching Points:
