Is there a drill for relay throws?

Relay Drill

Form two teams and have players line up about 60 feet apart (30 with younger players). Start with a ball at the beginning of each line and have the players throw consecutively to the next player in line. The player must field the ball cleanly and throw to the next player. When it gets to the far end, reverse the throwing and head back. The team that completes the drill flawlessly first is the winner.

This drill simulates cut-off throws. Keep the concentration on throwing at the player's head (or raised arms). Speed is important, and the players will realize that technique generates the speed!
