Description of Drill-Execution

Start by dividing the team into groups of 3. 2 players are the passers while 1 player is in the middle trying to get the ball back. The 2 passers should stand 15-20 yards away. The defensive player in the middle should have their stick up ready to deny any pass to the opposite player. Make sure the passers are throwing realistic passes not loopy passes.
