Sprints Diagram



  1. P1 rolls the ball to P2, then sprints to the finish line,
  2. P2 must stop the ball with a quality touch, then tag P1 before he crosses the finishing line.
  3. Have the players to push-ups or sit-ups if the ball isn’t stopped properly, P2 tags P1 or if either play walks back to get in line.

Run this exercise for no more than 5 minutes.
Switch the side with the ball half way through.
