If seen as going up and down, cones can represent close to thrower and further away.
Since one set of cones are close together, the defender should stand on that side of the attacker. When the attacker attempts to run to these cones, the defender will be in position. Also, when the attacker runs to other cones that are further apart, they will be able to touch their cone before attacker reaches their's.
Use this drill to practice:
4 cones positioned in a straight line. Outer cones should be roughly 12m apart. One inner cone should be roughly 1m from outer cone, second inner cone should be roughly 2m from outer cone.
