Description of Drill-Execution

Players are stationed with extra balls at 4 locations inside the restraining boxes. Drill begins with line 1 throwing a pass to a player breaking out of line 2. Line 2 player then passes to the goalie. Goalie passes back to player from line2. Player from line2 then makes another pass to line 4. Line 4 passes to line 3, and the drill continues back the opposite way. Players always go to the line they make a pass to (except for the goalie).
