Tip by Jessica Fritz from Rugby, ND. High School....We love the 2 ball drill. It works on communication and awareness. The right backs each throw a ball into play on the other side, the teams play it out. You can only tip or roll while two balls are in play. Once you are down to one ball, anything goes. It's fun listening to them talk through this drill. It is frustrating at first, but once they get the idea, it's fun. We play until 5. You can only score if your side wins both balls.
