Description: Set up 4 cones around the attack zone, two cones up top and two on goal line extended out about 10 yards. The balls are down low at the lower cones with player 1 (P1). P1 looks to drive up the lane and accept a pick from player 2 (P2). P2 must time the pick and stay still till P1 passes and releases off the pick. P2 then rolls off towards the goal and looks for the fee dfrom P1. P1 must be sure to keep moving to create space to feed P2 in the middle.

Both lines are going at the same time, and all feeds end with a shot into the goal. Have players rotate to each side of the drill as you like.

Variation: Vary the locations where the pick and roll happens. Add defense to the drill, but on a limited basis.

Women’s Variation: The drill is setup with 4 cones in the attack zone around the 12 and 8 meters.
