Two cones, 26 yards apart.

A different color cone in the middle of them (13 yards).

2 more cones 5 yards either side of the middle cone to form 2 gates.

A Player on each of the outside cones.

A Center Midfielder in between one of the gates.

Description

The outside player passes in to the Center Mid - who has checked away from the defender (middle cone) and is sideways on. The pass should be to the center midfielder's outside/furthest leg. He receives with one touch, and plays a pass with his second touch into the opposite outside player. The Center Mid then checks to the opposite gate and the process repeats. Switch the person in the middle every 2 minutes.
