Interchanging Positions | Technical Practice (04-P3)
Set Up / Organisation
This practice develops passing and movement with quick, short sharp combinations in tight spaces. With 4 stations for players to begin their movement, our first player begins the sequence by playing a 15 yard pass, who can set in one touch for the passer to play through to the next station. The next 2 players perform the same sequence with each player following their pass.
