This is an exercise to develop coordination skills which uses a training ladder


  • The players work in pairs; one ball per pair
  • Move through the ladder sideways while passing the ball to one another

Key Points

  • Ensure the ladder is properly laid out; reset it if necessary before each ‘go’
  • Do not cross the legs
  • At first concentrate on moving through the ladder and stopping to pass the ball; gradually increase the pace


  • An inventory of equipment to support ABC exercises is available in the Resources section
