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.
Run into space
Follow the ball carrier
Don't follow too close
Try to take the ball without slowing down
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.
4 Players work as a team to make 10 passes. Defender tries to tag a player who is holding the ball. Either rotate the defenders or if caught the tagged player becomes the next defender.
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.
