This intermediate drill to practice the Roll Lift reduces the space available to the players to perform the technique


  • Place 4 cones in a zig-zag formation 5-8m apart
  • A line of players is positioned behind a marker at each end
  • A further player is positioned at each of the four cones; place one sliotar at the first and third cones
  • The front player in the near line moves forward and roll lifts the ball at the first cone, carrying it and placing it at the second cone; repeat at cones three and four
  • The front player in the far line repeats in the other direction
