To work on catching difficult passes.

Set Up

  • Grab a partner to act as passer, get into the stance on the LOS, and place net or some other object (a wall, or fence for example) 10-15 yards down the field to block any errant throws or dropped passes.

  2. Passer will throw pass either high, low, or behind the receiver.

Coaching Tips
