Put your players in pair and set up a ball on a cone for each pair.

The players starts off about 4 or 5 yards away from the ball on the cone (battleship). Have them take turns trying to pass the ball into the battle ship and  knock the ball off the cone, if they hit the battleship they have to quickly reset the ball on the cone.

Make it into a competition, which pair can hit the battleship the most in two minutes.

If it is too easy make them take a step back every time they hit the battleship

Make sure your players are using correct technique, plant foot next to bal and striking the middle of the ball with the inside of the foot. Can the players do this with both feet?
