Activity 2: Pass and Move

Description

Set up 3 boxes with 3 players in each. Depending on numbers this can easily be adjusted. E.g. 8 players would be 2 groups of 4 in a box of 6 cones. The idea is simple, pass to one of the other players in your box and then move to the open cone. Let's keep this fast. Limit touches and encourage players to know where they are passing before the receive the ball.
