Description of Drill-Execution

Two lines of players are stationed at the top of the restraining box. Each 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. Players should be shooting with their “inside hands” and switch lines after each shot.
