1 player in a group of players kicks the ball into the air for the single player to catch the ball all player have to run and support the catcher and run towards the end of the grid passing the ball to each other.
One team starts in the middle of the grid along the line. The idea of the game is to kick the ball over the middle team and try to land the ball in the oppositions area. If the ball is caught then no points are scored, if the ball bounces in the oppositions area then 1 point is scored.
If one of the players in the middle catches the ball (they gain 1 point) then they swap positions with the team that kicked the ball.
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.
The box kick is a very dangerous tactic for attack and defense.
When attacking it can apply immense pressure on a team by putting the ball behind them. It also isolates the receiver making them vulnerable to turnover.
It can also be dangerous if not executed correctly as you can end up giving away possession.

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
