Needed? Balls, Cones, 3+ Players, Goalie How? There are three parts to this drill, part B and C are almost identical, while part A starts it and creates the drill. Part A: (3's Across) Player 1 starts with the ball and track on an angle (he/she can track to either side, Left is pictured), then they dump the ball back to Player 2, who receives and passes the ball across the circle to Player 3, who has since made a lead top the top of the circle. Player 3 receives and quickly shoots at goal, either finding Player 1 for a tip or shooting to score. Part A done. Part B: Either Player 2 OR 3 gets a ball from cone B (NOTE: NOT Player 1) Let's say Player 2 gets the ball, know Player 1 and 3 are moving around to receive a pass from Player 2. Player 2 acts as tho he/she is taking a free hit outside the circle, which means the ball HAS TO GO 5 meters before entering the circle. Players 1, 2 and 3 got together to goal and score. Part B done. Part C: ANY player can get the ball from cone C, this player acts as if it is a free hit outside the circle, so the ball HAS TO GO 5 METERS. Play it out like Part B. Part C done and players switch out of the drill. OPTIONAL PART D: Have two piles of balls on either side of the baseline (as pictured) and after the drill will flow as followed. Part A stays the same, BUT now the players must choose to do either B OR C (NOT BOTH) and after they do B OR C then they pick either the Right pile OR the Left pile (AGAIN NOT BOTH). This ball can be taken by anyone, while part B or C has to be take by Player 2 or 3. Why? Working on off-ball movement and creating space inside the circle.
Keep the creativity up, make sure your athletes are trying new things and do not do the same thing over and over again. For example, you can have Part A be a free for all, with Player 1 doing whatever he/she desires.
