Passing Warm up

Description

1) The practice starts with the first player in group B to come and meet the pass from group A then dribbles the ball back to the line where the next man in group A starts the process again.

2) After the pass from group A the player who passed the ball makes a run into the middle who gets a quick 1-2 from the players from group D who will have dribbled up to the first cone, he will receive the ball back and dribble back before spining to join group C

3) The same player who quickly plays the 1-2 goes and receives the pass from group C and then will pass back to that group and spin into group D. The player from group C, who passes into the middle, runs straight to group B where the practice starts again.
