Three players are lined up in a straight line approx. 30ft. apart
A player on either end starts with the ball.
This players slap on the ball starts the drill and is a signal for the player in the middle to cut towards him to receive a pass from him.
The middle player cuts towards the passer, receives the pass that is thrown to him and completes a legal stop(jump stop or one two stop).
After making the catch and stop, this player makes a legal pivot and passes to the player on the other end. After this pass is caught by the ender the middle player cuts towards the ender and receives a return pass from him where apon the middle player again completes a legal stop, pivot and passes to the player on the other end.
For youth players I would switch the middle man after he has made anywhere from 5 to 10 passes or or you could do the drill for 30 to 45 sec. and then rotate players so that everybody in the drill gets a shot in the middle especially.
Vary the spacing, number of passes or the time limit with different age groups
This drill will help your player develop the habit of meeting a pass that is thrown to them. It will help develop their hands and pivoting footwork.
Passing, meeting the pass, catching, Stopping(jump stop, one two stop,) pivoting.
