Passing & Receiving
Ball is played into the player by the far post who has to sweep the ball into the goal with a smooth, first time shot.
Player 1 starts by running with the ball to the right hand cone, keeping the ball in contact with the stick, before passing the ball to the next player (Red Player 1).
