Coaches create a square with four cones and divide the players equally along each side. Each player has a ball and faces inward. Players must dribble the ball to the opposite side of the square, turn around, and dribble back to the starting position.
The size of the square depends on the number of players and their skill level. In addition, coaches should understand that a smaller square allows players to develop greater control over their dribbling while a larger square encourages them to identify empty spaces and accelerate into them. Varying the size of the square allows players to learn different skills.
This drill can prove extremely difficult for players, so many coaches choose to use it as a warm up and have players only do it for a short period at the beginning of each practice.
