Players stand a few steps behind their cone.
The first player with the ball in hand should step up to their cone and then aim their pass in front of their target recipient (pass to that player's cone).
As the pass is made in front of them players should be ready to move forwards to receive the ball and then pass it to another player as fast as possible (without losing control of the ball).
Fast passing, good movement to meet the ball.
Players should recognise that if they move forwards to meet the pass they are cutting down the window of opportunity for the opposition to drive in and make an interception.

542 attack : free throws
Player 1 is acting as the feeder as all other players line up to their left and right. Player one carries the ball towards the defender in order to create space for the players to their left and right.
Once they have engaged the defender they should offload the ball to their left, in front of player 2.
Player 2 so must move forwards to meet the pass. Once they have the ball under control they should switch the ball cross-court to player 3, making sure their pass is out of the defender's reach.
Player 3 runs onto this pass and then shoots on goal.

Players take it in turns to make a run to their cone, just outside the 9 meter line. Once they reach the cone players must feint moving inside before cutting outside to receive the pass just outside the 6 meter line from the feeder. After receiving the pass players must shoot at goal.
Passes go from 1-2-3. Attacker 3 tries to score a goal against defender 3, if this is not successful then he passes to attacker 2 who tries to score a goal. If not sucessful pass to wing 1.
4 attacking players against 4 defenders - with the attackers trying to score a goal. The attackers start on either wing and take it in turn to run forward and try to get past their opposite number. If they are unable to get past their marker the players should pass the ball across the line to a fellow attacker.
In this game the wing player (green 1) feeds the ball to the first attacker who then works with their partner to try and get past the two defenders. Always try to get stuck into the two defenders, play the ball fast and always move back quickly to get into a new position to receive the pass back immediately and change the direction of the attacking 'wave'.
Blue players pass the ball around, working in a group of four. Before each player can pass though they must run forward until they have made contact their defender. The two defenders are marking two players each. Red 1 is marking the even numbers (2 and 4) while red 2 is marking the odd numbers.
Players line up on the sideline with a ball each and take it in turns to run across the court. As they approach each cone players should pass to static players making a sharp move towards the static players, feinting movement in that direction, before cutting back out to receive the pass in space. Players all perform three cuts before they reach the other side of the court - where they then dribble with the ball around the area to the back of the line.
