Players are split into 2 groups. In each group half go to the top cone and half go to the bottom cone. 1 and 2 dribble at the same time towards the row of 4 cones (defender). They both perform the move (coaches choice) at the cone and both go to the right. They then dribble to the back of the opposite line. Do the same move but go to the left after 2 minutes
