The player with the ball keeps it secured under one of his arms. The opposition player then works hard for ten seconds, trying to reach and get the ball from the opponent, who is holding onto the front of their shirt with a strong arm.
Your players decide which arm they wish to use to fend off their opponent, whilst you should be encouraging the defender to try their hardest continously to reach the ball.
Players line up on the left hand side of each gate and they start in a line, 5m down from the first gate.
The player with the ball rolls the ball out for a player to run onto and collect whilst moving.
They then pass the ball back before replacing the player that rolled the ball out. The player that rolled the ball out runs to join the back of the queue.
Players run in any direction in the grid trying to avoid contact by running into space. When the teacher calls stop, all players must be at least 1m from the next nearest player.
Pass the ball around your back at the same time.
Option: throw the ball in the air and catch as you run around
Keep your player briefing, brief! Tell your players the folloiwng......... Players should be moving, staying around 5 meters part - running with the ball and attacking space. Players make 10 passes and then: Make figure 8 between legs. Partner does the same after another 10 passes. 10 passes then throw ball up and make a 360 degree turn to catch it before it hits the floor. 10 passes then throw ball overhead and catch it behind back. You might consider asking players to pass the ball with just one hand, off their hip
