Split your group in half and line them up behind two different cones on the sideline.
On the coach's call players from both line run one at a time around the cone and back. Once they're back the next player can go.
However, to make things hard for them there are two players on the cone on the opposite side of the court who are trying to block the running players. Which group will finish first?
Defending in a personal duel:
- Arms are slightly bent
- Arms in front of you
- Prevent attackers to come into between your arms
Players are in a circle.
Pairs are opposite eachother and get the same number.
When the trainer calls out a number, the pair in question sprint to the ball and try to get it before the other one of the pair does.
- just touch the ball and sprint back : Who is back first ?
- run backwards back to your position
- hop one one leg to the ball and back
- make the distance to the ball larger, shorter
One player stands about 2-3 meters in front of the other players.
This player is the feeder for their group and passes to the other players.
Once a player has caught the ball from the feeder and passed it back, they run to the back of their own queue.

From this point the tagger has up to 45 seconds to catch the player.
