This drill will develop your players ability to regather difficult balls and make offloads.
Working in groups of three, one player is practicing the skill at a time.
The practicing player throws the ball to two other players who are holding balls.
These two players bounce the ball back and the practicing player has to gather the ball without knocking it on.
Now the practicing player holds two balls. He has to offload and then regather the ball with one hand. (0.40)
Players should stay light on their feet.
Keeping knees bent and being nice and low is important.
When gathering the ball, players should keep their eye on the ball and when offloading keep their eye on player they are offloading to.
In a game there can be lots of things going on, mistakes will be made when your players get distracted.

Partner does the same after another 10 passes. 10 passes then throw ball up and make a 360 degree turn to catch it before it hits the floor. 10 passes then throw ball overhead and catch it behind back. You might consider asking players to pass the ball with just one hand, off their hip
