Player 1 starts with the ball in the middle of the court and plays the ball to player 2 who cuts in to the first cone.
Player 2 must then pass to player 3 who has also made a run inside to the other cone further up the court.

Duration of the each drill is 1 minute.
1. Start off with simple chest passing to each other whilst jogging on the spot. After a little while change the type of pass to a bounce pass.
2. Same as above, this time alternating the types of pass, throwing one chest and one bounce pass.
3. Players must move from one sideline to the other whilst maintaining the same distance between one another. Move the ball between one another by using simple chest passes whilst jogging. After about a minute repeat this stage using bounce passes.
4. Increase and decrease the distance between the players and move from sideline to sideline. Simple chest passes to each other whilst jogging. When both players are at the sideline, they might use a javelin or baseball pass to each other. After use bounce passes. After use exercises 2 and 3.
Make a pass off to your left whilst moving forwards. Arm should follow the path of the ball to ensure correct trajectory.

Imagine that you have caught the ball out in front of you. You would then absorb the momentum of the ball by bringing in the ball to your chest, bending the knees. This also helps to protect the ball from defenders and gives you a stable platform. Bringing the ball up your chest in an upward arc, release the ball out level with your chest, arm outstretched.
