Description of Drill-Execution
Start by setting up a 3v3 at both ends with lines of attack(X) and defense(D) at each restraining line. The drill begins by the goalie clearing the ball to attack(X) on either side. An attacker make a wing-to-wing pass to the first player in line and then becomes the trailing defender. The player takes the ball full speed to goal. If there is a goal or save, the goalie clears to D on either side and the drill repeats.
