Place 2 small hurdles sideways to the center circle, close to the touchline at 40 meters from the limit of the box. Place a marker 5 meters distant from the small hurdles. Place 5 small hurdles horizontally sideways to the marker (See picture). Form a 10x10 meters square close to the corner flag. Divide players into 2 teams. Team A goes to the starting cone, give a ball to each of them. Group B goes to the cone near the touchline (See picture).
