2 groups of teams line up across the grid facing each other, 8 players each side. On GO the ball carriers team runs towards the other team passing the ball as they run until the end players gets it and passes it to the first player in the team facing them. Repeat the drill with the second team playing the opposite direction
Start at slow pace before speeding up
Not too much distance between players to start with
Good passing and catching techniques
Call for the ball
Stay in your own channel
Pass off left and right hands
Move faster, more distance between players
Extend channel length and have ball pass one way and back before passing to next team
The players run to the cone and then pass the ball square before running on to the next cone and pass square. When the players reach the end they have to run back through the middle of the cones.
The practice keeps repeating.
4 cones and 1 ball per group.
Split the group into teams of three. On the coaches command the players start running up the channel passing between them, once they reach the end they turn around and come back repeating the passing.
The first player moves forwards, makes contact with the tackle bag and retreats diagonally to the line of cones.
The next player joins the line and both the players move forward and hit the tackle bag or shield before retreating back to the line again.
The third player then joins the line and all three players go out to meet the tackle bag, shield or fall on the ball.
Drill continues with all players involved.

The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
