Description of Drill-Execution
First you need two lines of 7 field players, balls and 2 goalies. Have 7 field players set up in a zigzag pattern on both sidelines. The goalie clears the ball to the 1st player who immediately looks up the field for the first transition pass. She sprints up field while the ball goes from player to player. Player 1 receives the final pass and looks to shoot. This will go on simultaneously on both sides.
