Description of Drill-Execution

Set up 5 cones in the fan and label each cone by number, letter or color. Coach will have the balls at varying places around the fan. Players are lined up related to the coach’s position. The coach yells out a designated cone and player sprint to receive the ball at that cone and then takes a shot. This is good for goalie reaction. Make sure the cones are spread out.
