Additional game-related conditioning drills

V-touch conditioned game

In this game, Team A in red attacks `Team B in yellow. Team A must get through the ‘V’ (marked out by the blue cones) without being touched, dropping the ball or passing the ball forward. After they get through the ‘V’, they must sprint back outside the cones to the start/finish of the ‘V’ (i.e. the tip of the ‘V’). The clock stops when the last player gets past the start/finish line. The defenders can only move laterally (sideways) and touch with one hand. The drill is timed and the teams try to get a perfect run in the shortest time.
