To work both draws, fast breaks, and 7 v 7 for your offense and defense.

Description of Drill-Execution

Two middies come to the faceoff circle with a ball each.  One is used for the draw and the other ball is placed off to the side.  Both players draw with the first ball, and the winning middie attacks with the first ball, while the losing middie grabs the 2nd ball to attack the opposite end.  The players push the fast break and run a quick 5 on 4 break.  Then two more offensive player and 3 defensive players enter each side to make two 7 v 7’s at one time.

To vary the drill you may add an extra defensive player at the box area that will run in as a training defense after the draw.  This will make a 5v5 if the fast break doesn’t work and you have to slow the break.
