Another great Change of Direction Routine

Diagram 1
The 2 lines of players line up either side of the post, with feeders on the third line.
W1 and W4 sprint out at 45 to receive the ball and return it to the feeder, (passes 1 and 2).

Diagram 2
W1 and W4 then sprint towards the cones or discs. W4 goes behind the discs and W1 goes in between the discs.
They then change direction.
The F's now pass the ball to W1 and W4 (pass 3).
The F's now go out to their left and right respectively, (move 4) and receive the ball from W1 and W4 (pass 4)

Diagram 3
W1 and W4 take the place of the F's (move 5) and receive the ball from the F's. (pass 5).
The F's join the end of the lines and W1 and W4 now become the new feeders and the routine continues.

Coaching Points
Everything is done at pace.
• The change of direction is quick, with the outside foot planted firmly for a strong push off.
• Stress the need for good arm action and a good straight line sprinting technique, ie everything in line.
• All the runs should be in straight lines.
• When W1 and W4 receive the ball at the feeding position, they need to jump in the air so they receive the ball facing the next workers.
