This basic drill to practice the Crouch Lift technique requires the players to lift and drop the ball within a short distance


  • Place 4 cones in a line at equal distances over approximately 10 to 15m
  • Divide the players into equal groups, positioned at each of the outer cones
  • Place a ball at one of the centre cones
  • The front player nearest the ball jogs forward to crouch lift the ball 
  • Continuing forward they place the ball at the next cone for the first player opposite to repeat the drill, and so on
  • The players continue to the end of the opposite line

STEP Variation

Space – To increase the difficulty of the drill reduce the space between the centre cones
