Set-Up:

Place pairs of cones approximately 30 ft apart. Have players in groups of two or three stand behind the cones. One ball needed per line.

Next player will go and do the same, yelling 'TWO' when they return, and so on and so on until they get to 'TEN'. When ten reps are completed, team will put foot on ball and raise their hand so coach will know they have finished. Give 3 points to the team that finishes first, 2 points to the second place team and 1 point to the third place team.
