How it works: This “oldie but goodie” drill uses six players—three each side—and a full court. A coach tosses the ball into play, and the receiving team must pass and attack. No third contact is allowed and the second ball cannot be a pass or set. Play continues until a dead ball occurs.
Requirements: 6 players, a cart of balls, a full court and a coach
