Blue player 1 runs anti-clockwise around the first cone and passes to blue player 2 who passes back immediately.
Blue player 2 then runs across to the other side of the cones so that they can receive the next pass.
Change players over regularly.
The coach can shout : -change direction- at any time to keep players on their toes.
At the end of the drill, defenders can be added at certain positions to additionally train 1:1 duels as a repetition.
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.
Three players line up across the width of the pitch, these players are the return passers. When they receive a pass they throw it immediately back to the player who passed to them.
The remainder of the players have a ball each and start on the sideline. Their job is to run the width of the pitch, passing the ball to all the return passers, catching the return pass and then carrying on to the next player.
When they reach the other side of the pitch they run around the cone and then dribble as fast as they can to the back of the queue.
Run forward and pass.
B1 starts the exercise, B6 puts down the balls and start the exercise from his side afterwards.

Players work in groups of three with one ball per group.
The worker (player 2) passes the ball to the feeder (player 1) and then follows their pass, looping behind the feeder.
Once they are behind the feeder they then call for the return pass which they then offload to the next player in line.
Drill continues in this way.

The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
