Player 1 runs from the cone and thru the gate, then looks up to receive a pass from Player 3. Player 1 controls and then passes across to Player 2, making his run thru the gate on the opposite side. After Player 2 receives and controls, he passes across to Player 3 as he comes thru the gate. Play continues in this pattern, with players receiving after coming thru the gate, passing the ball across, and then going to the line on the opposite end. After five minutes, the direction of the drill changes to counter-clockwise.
