Players in pairs with the ball on the right.
Player 1 runs into the circle towards the defender. The defender runs out, with their body positioning blocking the direct pass to the support player (player 2).
Just before the player 1 gets within tackling range of the defender they perform the reverse stick drag to go around the defender's reverse stick side (defender is not allowed to run back).
Next the player runs to commit the keeper and then passes the ball to the support player on the far post for that player to sweep the ball into the open goal (first time shot).
Once the attacking players are more comfortable with this drill the defender could run out with the stick on the reverse or forehand and the player on the ball has to decide whether to pass the ball direct to the support player or go round the player.
The Left wing(LW) receives ball from Left midfield (LM) and takes the ball into the zone where the right defender(RD) can try and win the ball. Just before the LW loses the ball he/she turns away from the RD and passes the ball to LM. It is important that LM stays outside the zone and straight behind the LW. When the LM receives the ball he/she has to try and get the ball to Right midfield(RM) either direct or via the Center midfield (CM) depending what The defending midfielder (DM) is doing. The DM is restricted to the coned area and therefore can only intercept when LM runs with the ball into that area.
Pass and follow sequence LM-LW-CM-RM-LM (RD + RMD should be switched every so often).
Player 1 passes the ball to player 2, who plays a 2v1 with player 3 through the channel. Once through, the attack becomes a 4v2 to try and score a goal. The defender in the channel stays and waits for the next attack.
Working in pairs players have to play 1 touch passes across the river (2 lines of cones about 2 meters apart).
If one of the players touches the ball twice they should stop and go back, joining the queue again.
This way only the players who successfully pass their way down the river can have a shot at goal (again with their first touch).
Players in pairs have to try and 1st touch pass the ball across the river if one of the players touches the ball twice they should stop and come back so only if the players are successful all the way they can have a shot at goal (again with their first touch.)
Players start from the left or the right with a ball.
One defender in the Circle and one support attacker on the back line.
Players with the ball start out side the circle and have to try and score.
Depending on how what the defender does the attacker with the ball can choose to use the 2nd attacker or go on their own to score.

3 Players with a ball are trying to get one of the wide players across the goal line by passing the ball via the support player. The defending player ha to try and stop the player crossing the line.
4 players with 2 balls. One player in the middle is tightly marked. One of the players with the ball passes the ball at the marked player who then wall passes the ball back to this player for him/her to run with the ball to the other side. Then the 2nd player with the ball does the same once on the other side. Turn and repeat role reversal in the middle.
