Help me stop my 11-12yr old girls stepping!

Am having real issues with our girls stepping. Other than the "Ice Cream" drill, does anyone have any ideas on how to tackle this? We were lucky this week as we had 2 umpires that didn't call it much - but this won't continue (i hope)

whats the "ice cream" drill?  i tend to just make them run to me and jump and land with 2 feet.  that way they have 2 grounded feet.  also make sure they are landing with their chest up.  forward momentum and off balance landings tend to lead to stepping as they cant stop.  i also like to teach my girls to hop or jump just before they catch the ball.  keeps them running onto the ball, and have them landing with 2 feet together, then get them to pivot and throw to the person where they just ran from, as an add on drill.
