  1. Create a grid approximately 10X20 yards.
  2. Two players start on the corner cone opposite each other.
  3. One player starts in the center of the grid.


  1. Player 1 starts the play by passing into the central player (Player 2).
  2. Player 1 moves to the cone to his side and receives the ball back from player 2.
  3. After returning the ball to player 1, player 2 moves to player 1's original starting position at the cone.
  4. Player 1 plays a long ball to Player 3 and moves into the center of the grid to become the new central player.
  5. Player 3 plays into Player 1 who returns the ball to player 3 at the cone placed 10 yards away.
  6. Player 1 now takes the starting position of Player 3 while Player 3 plays a long ball down to the starting position and Player 3 becomes the central player.
  7. The pattern is repeated.


  • Switch and go the other direction so that players are used to playing from different angles.
