Description of Drill-Execution

Divide players into groups of 3-4. Cones are set up in a triangle. The passer stands at the top of the triangle at A. A teammate is sprinting to B then cuts to C.  The passer then moves the ball to Z as a teammate runs to the cone. Passers are really passing to where the cone is as if the cone is a person. Teammates are running onto the ball.
