The second player starts out when the first player has placed down the first ball, and so on.
Players rejoins the end of the line after placing down the last ball.
Balls should be placed firmly down with two hands.
Balls must not be dropped or roll on the ground.
Players should practise placing the ball down on both the left and right sides.
Two players with shields stand facing the runners on opposite sides of a grid. On the command, the players run into the shield and spins to their right before joining the back of the group on the left hand side. The practice keeps repeating.
On GO, each ball carrier drives into the contact pad and spins out, past the defender before passing the ball to the next player in the other group.
Place 2 players in the centre. Both players pass to those running the circle.
Notice that the gap between the passer and the catcher has narrowed because there are now 2 players acting as passers.
The ball carrier and one support player runs towards the other group and, at the middle the ball carrier goes to ground and presents the ball. The support player straddles the player on the ground, picks up the ball and runs on to the next group, passing the ball to them
