Objective

This drill is excellent for teaching how to run a slow break and look for trailing players that could be open breaking down the point for open shots.  Timing and vision is everything in these drills.

Description of Drill-Execution

Balls start at the low two cones.  Those lines will go to goal and dodge when they get to goal line extended.  You will be looking for the dodging players to throw back or roll back when they look to move the ball.

The two lines up top will drift into the attack box and look to move into a position where they can cut down on a slow break, look for a pass from the dodging player, and finish.

Have your players rotate to a different line each time.
