Description of Drill-Execution

This drill starts at half field and finishes with a shot on goal.  Set up a line at midfield with majority of the players.  Set up 4 cones down the field with 2 girls at each cone.  The player at midfield travels in a straight line.  They must have flexible upper body to make all passes over arm.  Make sure they are changing hands and throwing with their outside hand.  Switch the players at the cone after each player has gone through the drill a set number of times.  If you have the full field, have players going to both goals.
