Players take it in turns to run with the ball and play three consecutive one-twos (passing and receiving the return pass).
This should be performed without dribbling, with players using their 3 steps to receive the ball and in turn pass to the next player.
When they reach the other side of the court (after the third pass) players dribble around the cones and back to the start line.
Once players have performed this drill a few times you can encourage them to use different passing styles such as the bounce pass.
The first player waiting in line passes to the first player on the cone and immediately follows their pass and runs behind that player to receive the return pass.
Once they have the ball in hand again they pass the ball to the next player and drive behind them to loop in front of them and receive the ball again.
Once the player reaches the end of the course they dribble the ball to the corner and then sprint around the court back to the end of the line with the ball in hand.
Simple pass and follow drill. Starting with two players on the first cone and then one player on every other cone.
The first player throws the ball to player two and then immediately sprints to follow their pass. Player 2 catches the ball and then turns and throws the player 3 before then also following their pass.
This pattern continues until the player on the final cone receives the ball. At this point they dribble back to the start cone and the drills starts again.
Every player, except the players on the wings, runs out to receive the pass and passes it on again in the same direction.
Blue 1 starts the exercise and passes to blue 2 who runs forward and passes to blue 3 who also comes forward. The drill continues in this way.
After passing the ball players continue running in the same direction to the opposite cone, ready to repeat the drill again in the opposite direction.
Run forward and pass.
B1 starts the exercise, B6 puts down the balls and start the exercise from his side afterwards.
