You have one player 18 yd in front of the center of each goal to lay balls off. The other players and balls are even with the opp goal line and straight in front of the player laying balls off. Players play a ball into the target which is laid off first time for a one time shot. The player that laid the ball off then goes to the end of the other line, and the shooter takes the place of that player to lay balls off. But lines go at the same time and the player continue to cycle through.
