Description

Set up in groups of 4.

The worker (A) stands inside a 3x3m box. Each corner has a different colour cone.

Other players include a feeder (player B), one post player (player D), and one runner (player C).

The drill:

The aim is to for player A to take a catch on the move, and produce a quick accurate throw to the post.

  1. Player D is in charge of the drill and they call out a colour of the cones. Player A uses quick feet to get around that cone.
  2. Player B can feed the ball at any point after the colour has been called.
  3. Player C can run to the post as soon as the ball has been fed.
  4. Player A completes the catch and throws the ball to player D to try and run out player C.

Coaching points

Player A should be up and working on the balls of their feet (quick feet).

The timing of the catch and accurate throw to the post are the key focus of this practice.

Repeat 5 times and then rotate players around. A to D, D to C, C to B, B to A.
