The following exercise is another option to diversify your passing and receiving exercise arsenal. Six cones are placed in a hexagon shape and five players are placed behind different cones. The player that starts with the ball should not have another player behind the cone to his or her right. The starting player passes the ball behind the empty cone to his or her right. The player at the next cone (2nd cone to the starting player’s right) checks towards the cone and receives the ball (this motion begins before the ball is passed). The next player does the same and the players should be receiving a ball on the move. This enforces the ability to pass and receive on the move instead of some other stagnant passing exercises. Ask your players to focus on the timing of their checks so that they are receiving the ball on the move and getting training on timing of runs at the same time. Vary the manner in which the payers receive and play the ball (i.e. receive with inside of left and play with inside of right, receive with outside of right and play with inside of right, receive across the body with inside of right and play with inside of right … etc.) and switch directions.
