The exercise 1-2 starts by the player, who is making various tasks and movements with the ball, then he passes it to the Quickster after some completed tasks (he can choose free the moment). At the time of the pass, the coach lifts up one cone to sign the direction for the player, who reacts fast, receives the ball with different techniques, dribbles the ball toward the signed pole to bypass it and to arrive at the starting position.
