Set-up a 10 meter grid with a player on each corner.
Player 1 starts with the ball.
Player 1 passes the ball to player 2 and then quickly moves off their cone and runs to the cone where player 2 is and back to their cone.
Player 2 then passes to player 3, follows the pass to the position of player 3 and back to their starting position.
The aim is to for the players to be back in their starting position before the ball returns back.
Vary the drill, passing to the left and right.
1) Run out to a cone - round cone back to the team
2) Run out to a different cone but back to your own team.
3) Dribble ball with your feet up to the line - dive on ball - pick up ball and run back.
Set up the practice as shown above.
