Four players per team on the pitch
with any number in the squad but no goalkeepers; continuous substitutions allowed.

Play two x5 minute halves. Allow a short half-time for the teams to have a quick discussion before changing ends.

The game starts with a pass from the centre. Teams earn points by scoring goals, after which the game restarts from the centre. The winning team has the most points at the end of the game.

Points to consider:

Accurate passing; Catching technique; Communication; Decision making of when and how to pass.
