This is a basic drill to practice the solo technique

Organisation

  • Divide the players into groups of five; one ball per group
  • Mark out a distance of 10m using cones
  • The players line up behind the first cone
  • Each player solos out and around the far cone
  • On the return, they hand pass to the next player in line who repeats the drill

STEP Variation

Task - Initially, players should catch the ball as they round the far cone; progress to rounding the cone without catching the ball

Task - Initially the players should use two hands; progress to holding the hurley with one hand as they become more proficient
