This is a great warm-up to get your players ready for passing and receiving in a match.
How to do it
Arrange your players into two groups.
Let the two groups number themselves 1 to 4.
Tell the players to continually pass the ball and move in their areas.
Call out a number and that player must sprint across to the opposite area to join that team and continue to pass and move.
