Description of Drill-Execution

Have your players all get a ball and set up in a straight line at the top of the attack zone. Set up a cone in the middle of the box about 5 yards inside of the attack zone, and then another cone to both the right and left about 5 yards down and 5 yards over. One at a time, your players will drive into the zone and split dodge at the first cone. The player will then go right or left and when they reach the next cone they will roll inside and drive for the shot.
