You use flick-on headers when you want to slightly alter the plane of the ball but keep it going in the same direction to find a teammate behind you. Often it’s done by the attacker on the near post to find a teammate behind them at the far post. Or, it’s done on a long punt or drop kick to put a teammate in behind the defense. The first exercise: a partner tosses the ball, and the player flicks the ball on to the third person and turns around; then the service goes the other direction.
