2 Balls, 6+ players To start the drill, line one (blue) passes to their left to line two (the line without a ball), and then performs a quick clearing movement out to the left, returning to the back of their own line. Line three (Green) then passes to line one, and line two (Orange) then passes to line three, with the passer clearing out to their left each time. Drill starts with just passing, so the players become accustomed to where theyâre receiving and passing the ball.
Once theyâre comfortable with the basics, each player needs to perform a quick, strong drive onto the ball when they receive it, before clearing out with real intensity. The clearing movement is just as important as the drive. After a short time, you can reverse the direction of the drill, so players are passing to their right and clearing out to the right. Extend the drill further by spreading out the three lines and focusing on a longer, stronger drive onto the ball as each player receives their pass, and then a wider clearing movement to get out of the way. For more advanced groups, try changing the direction of the drill during play. Call âchangeâ so that the players must reverse the drill â the player who caught the last ball will need to pass back to the line they received it from. The drill then continues until you call âchangeâ again.
