Objective

This drill is excellent for teaching players to feed and cut in the midfield area.  It helps with ball movement and feeding at all areas of the field.

Description of Drill-Execution

Players set up in a box with lines 20-40 yards apart depending on how long you want the passes.
You will also have two designated feeders that will stand in between the lines on the sides.
The lacrosse balls are on a top side corner.  They start the drill by throwing a pass to the cutting player from the line to their side.
That player will catch and then throw right away to the designated feeder in between the lines, who does a give and go right back to that player.
That player catches the give and go, and throws the ball to the opposite corner.
The opposite corner will catch and start the ball back up by feeding the line to their side who is cutting in front of them. That player catches and does a give and go with the other designated feeder.
The play continues on a rapid fire pattern till time is up.
