This game works on your players ability to work the ball forward quickly through the hands. It also works on players on the outside area, working hard to get free to receive a pass.

Set up the game as in the animation, with a 2 players marking each other at either side. The idea is for the team in possession to work the ball to their player at the side in a set period of time ( Decided by the coach).

Once the player receives the ball the team immediately starts to attack the opposite side.

If the ball is turned over, the opposing team must work the ball to their player. Award 1 point every time a ball is worked out to the wide players
