This is an intermediate drill to practice striking from the hand

Organisation

  • Divide the players into pairs, one ball per pair
  • Place 3 cones 20m apart to form a triangle
  • First, each player strikes the ball on the run while moving along a length of the triangle; their partner remains in a stationary position
  • Second, each player strikes the ball from a stationary position to their partner who is moving along the far length of the triangle
  • Third, each player strikes the ball on the run to their partner who is also moving
  • Change the direction of the movement to strike off the alternate side

STEP Variation

Task - Vary the type of strike the player must use, e.g. high, low, to hand or to bounce
