This intermediate drill to practice the Solo technique requires the players to solo around a number of obstacles

Organisation

  • Divide the players into groups of 5; one ball per group
  • Mark out a distance of 12m using cones
  • Place 4 poles or more cones at equal intervals between the outer cones
  • Alternatively, 4 of the players may act as the obstacles
  • The players line up at one end 
  • Each player in turn solos the ball in and out between the poles, or their team mates 
  • When soloing to the left the players should use their left leg and when soloing to the right the players should use their right leg

STEP Variation

Task – Increase the distance between the poles and incorporate a bounce between toe taps
