The Set-up: 6 players in a group with 2 players (B &D) serving as wall passers. One player (C) begins about 20 yards across from the remaining players who form a line behind Player A. Player A has a ball. Note: passes are numbered to make exercise easier to follow. Change wall passers every 90 seconds!
The Exercise: Player A plays a short wall pass with player B. Player A immediately collects the ball and plays a longer pass to Player C and bends his run around the stationary Player D. Player C plays a short pass to the oncoming Player A. Player A returns the pass to Player C with one touch. Player C begins the same combination in the opposite direction with a wall pass to Player D. Player A takes up the position previously occupied by Player C.
