Kicking to a player who is leading at 45 degrees is a difficult skill, as players must judge their teammate's speed and angle, and put the ball to a spot they can run onto. This drill practices kicking to players leading at 45 degrees, both defensively and into attack with the flight of the ball. Working in pairs, the second player must put themselves in the best position to receive a handball.
