Progression:

When play is initiated and sprinters are returning to box, player with ball will call a color to join his team

Now the two players must work together to possess through into the farthest square

Focus on using partner as a decoy - don't force the pass too soon

Be aware of the space they are creating for you and use it

If both defenders press to the ball, now we look to release it to our partner
