This is an intermediate drill to practice the shoulder to shoulder clash


  • Mark out a channel using 2 lines of 3 cones as shown; the channel is 3m wide
  • Place 2 sliotars in the middle of the channel, one halfway between each set of cones
  • Divide the players into pairs
  • Each pair in turn contest both balls using the ground clash technique
  • Each player must travel around the outer cones before contesting each ball
  • Alternate sides on repeat attempts

STEP Variation

Equipment - As the players become more proficient, use a smaller ball, e.g. the Quick Touch ball; Alternatively use a fixed ball, such as the ball and pin apparatus
