Soccer drill procedure

The players exchange their places diagonally now.


The balls are in two diagonally facing rectangles at drill start. The pass is made from these rectangles to the other drill side. The passers then exchange their rectangles. The passes are expected in the cone fields on the other side of the field and back passes are made as soon as the passes are received. These players also exchange the rectangles. The drill continues like this, becomes more and more faster and the sequence always safer.
