Description of Drill-Execution
Start by dividing up players into 2 teams. Both teams are line up outside of the center circle with a 4v1 to begin the drill inside the center circle. Alternate who is on offense/defense each time. If the ball goes out of bounds the coach throws another ball into play. This is a man up/down keep away game. After the offense makes 4 complete passes, another defender is added, build to a 4v4. Play 5 balls or a set amount of time then switch roles.
