Description of Drill-Execution

Start by setting up 2 goals on each side of the field with two goalies in the goal. In addition set up six lines up and down the field. 4 lines on both sides of the restraining lines and two on both sides of the midfield line. The goalie starts the drill by throwing an outlet pass to the first line to their right. This player catches the ball then rolls it out to the mid field line in from of them. The midfield line then passes down the line to the other restraining line. Once the final line gets the ball they move it back to the goalie and the drill starts over again. The person who passes the ball gets into the line they pass to.
