Objective

To utilize all players on the field by passing the ball quickly and having the final pass end with a drive to goal on a 3 v 2.

Description of Drill-Execution

Main idea of the drill is to set up with 3 lines on top of the 8 and 2 behind the cage.  Move the ball as fast as you can so that all lines touch the ball, with the final line going to goal.  Drill forces 5 good passes and a solid shot!  The passes from the first two players will have those players drop into a defensive position and the other 3 players will move into a 3 v 2 for the final shot.
