-Teams receive 1 point for scoring within the oppositions half of field, 2 points for passing to a bumper player and then finishing and 3 points for scoring behind their half of center

-This will be exhausting for the players, so play for a max of 3 minutes and then rotate players. The players will get ``active rest`` as they serve as bumper players...

- when to pass and when to dribble...

-remind the players that they always have support behind them in the goalie...
