Description of Drill-Execution
Start by dividing the players into 2 teams. Play 5v5 within the 12-meter. If one team makes a goal, they get the ball back to restart the drill. If there is a turnover or goalie save the ball is cleared up to the 12-meter to the other team. Every possession, each player on their team must touch the ball before the team can attack the cage. On a turnover or a goal, each player once again must touch the ball before the team can attack.
