OBJECTIVE:

To practise ball handling skills remembering who you passed it to.

EQUIPMENT:

2 or more balls

GROUP SIZE:

5–15 players.

AREA:

Circle of players 1m apart.

DRILL SET-UP:

Make a circle with players all sitting down – one person starts with ball.

DRILL EXPLANATION:

  1. First player runs, passes ball to another player and stays standing (Cannot be someone NEXT to themselves).
  2. Continue with this pattern until all players have had the ball, then ball goers to player who started it all.
  3. When pattern is set this will be repeated but all players are standing, and tempo is fast.
  4. On “GO” player goes to player who they REMEMBER got the ball. Drill keeps going.
