How do I stop my 8 year olds from bunching?

How can I teach my 8 year olds to spread out when bringing the ball down the court?

I teach my 10 and 11 year olds to keep to their side of the court and in the general area of their position when the team is on attack.  This way the space opens up in the centre court. Another idea for practice that works well  is to divide the court into three lanes lengthways with chalk and get them to practice staying in their lane as they bring the ball through the court. I.e. WD and GA on one side, GK, C,GS are in the centre lane and GD/WA are on the other side. 

Sara, if you do a quick search on here you will find many a great answer to this very question (as its pretty common with this age group).  if you still cant find enough info, then let me know.

Do we have any video's on this topic?
