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.
Head Up, Eyes open
Look for space
Hands up ready to catch
No overhead passes
Defender focus on the tag
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.
Players take it in turns to be the defender in the middle (4 tackles then change). The attackers take turns to try and run past the defender and score a try.
1 tag - Defender scores 1 point.
Score a try - attacker scores 1 point.
If tagged the attacker returns to the start and the next player goes.
