Players 1 starts standing with the ball. Player 2 starts on one knee. Player 3 starts on both knees. Player 4 lies on their front. Player 5 lies on their back.
On the teachers call, all players try to start running forward as quickly as possible, and pass the ball along the line. The starting positions should mean that every pass is made to a player supporting from behind.
Players must get into position to receive a pass as quickly as possible.
Ball in 2 hands
Gentle passes in front of the support player
Support players call for the ball. Hands ready.
Delay your run so your always behind the ball
Each player should partner up with someone and then proceed to stand side by side. On the coaches call the players run to that sideline. If the coach calls 1 for example they have to run to the sideline before the 2s can catch them.
The pitch is divided into two halves
The defenders must start at opposite corners of the pitch
The attacker must have at least one player in either half. The middle player starts with the ball.
The leader with the ball can run in any direction. The rest of the group must follow like a snake. When the teacher calls Pass, the leader must stop, hold the ball out to the side so the next player can take the ball from their hands and continue running. The leader then joins the back of the group.
Groups of 5
Combine grids to make 2 channels each 10m x 20m
