Description of Drill-Execution

One line of players is stationed at the top of the restraining box. The line has plenty of balls for each player to get 5-10 shots. The players will make a “dummy” dodge towards the goal and then take an overhand shot at the goal while on the run. Players should be shooting overhand to ¾ and rotating their hips so that they end up backpedaling after the shot.
