Groups rotate after 5 attempts each. Winner is the one with the most points. Safety: No attacking shots. Aim to defend the ball back between the cones and if you leave the ball you can have another ball. N.B. An overarm throw will be necessary for this practice.

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
