Description

This is a relay for players to learn to react to balls that don't come directly towards them.

In Groups of 4, with one feeder and 3 players stood in a line players take it in turns to run out and react to the ball that's been thrown wide of them.

Once the ball's been thrown fielders must run out and gather the ball, before then throwing it back to the feeder and running to the back of the line, waiting for their next turn.

Coaching points

Look for players to set up a long barrier when they've got time, so that if their hands miss the ball it will roll into their legs and not behind them!

Drill tags: collecting the ball, fielding, long barrier
