This is what Coach Shaughnessy said about the drill:
This is a great way to get into 3v3 as all 6 players move the ball around the horn before getting into live play.
This forces the defense to sprint into closeouts, and the offense to reverse the ball quicker than the defense can get to its match up.
2 ways to play:
– Offense scores, stay on O.
– Defense has to get 3 stops in a row.
See Diagram Below:
x1 will pass to x2 and closeout to 1.
x2 will pass to x3 and closeout to 2.
x3 will pass to 1 and closeout to 3.
The ball is reversed from 1 to 3.
Play is live on 3’s catch.
