Have your central players line up on the goal posts, and your outside players line up on the outside lines.

Shout the number 1 - and that means the first four players run out to put pressure / 1 line of cover / 2nd line of cover / balance

Shout the number 2 - and the first group moves on to the next cone line and the next group comes out.

*Change up the numbers so you are not saying them in order*
