Focus of the Drill

This drill focuses on helping players to improve their 1-2 combination play by adding a unique pattern and encouraging good ball movement.


To set up this drill, first make a grid about 20 X 25 yards. Place players on three of the corner cones and a small line on the 4th cone. The ball will be put at the beginning of the line. Just 1 ball will be used in the start, but the number of balls can be varied according to the ages and skill levels of the players.
