Start with two players swimming side by side down the pool, with no ball. Next, one player crosses over the legs of his or her partner and then the other player does the same as they swim down the pool. Add a third player to the mix with the outside player swimming over legs of the middle player first from left and then from the right side. Add the ball by throwing it to an outside player who passes wet to the other outside player. This process of wet passes and crossing over the middle player's legs continues as the players swim down the pool. The final move is when the outside player with the ball reaches the 4 meter line in front of the goal. He or she makes a dry pass to the other outside player for a shot on goal. In this drill the movement is continuous and it keeps players swimming and doing ball work at same time.
Again this is an elegant little drill that works on conditioning, eye contact, and ball handling, all at the same time. I discovered this drill while visiting Athens, Greece, and I found it to be an excellent drill for early season. Finally, this drill will work with four athletes as well,
