Offense, Midfield, Defense
To work on stepping in the passing lane and causing a turnover by intercepting the pass.
Description of Drill-Execution
Start by dividing the team into groups of 3. You need 1 passer, 1 receiver, and 1 interceptor. Have the passer and receiver stand about 15-20 yards apart. The interceptor either stands 1-2 steps behind or off to the side of the receiver. As the passer throws the ball, the interceptor wants to time her movements to intercept the ball. Both the passer and receiver should stand stationary.
