When starting with the right foot:

(Switch left and right below when starting with the left foot)

  1. Take position on the left side of the first cone.
  2. Take the ball with the outside part of the laces of the right foot through the cones.
  3. Close in on the ball.
  4. As soon as the ball passes through the cones, perform a slap cut with the left foot.
  5. Step beyond the ball with the right foot.
  6. Take the ball through the cones with the left foot.
  7. Repeat the steps from 1-6 from here on for each foot.

Things to watch out for:

  1. The takes should be very accurate in direction and applied force. Too hard and it is impossible to make the next cone.
  2. Accuracy is more important than speed, so work on accuracy first.
  3. Make sure the ball doesn't roll over the foot when performing the slap cut.
