Organization:

30 x 20 (w/ 5 yard end zones)

2 teams of 4 per grid

Instructions:

1. (Play as a game, however,) Instead of having goals to score in, players must dribble into the end zone, pull the ball back and play it out to one of their players in order for it to count as a point.

2. If an attacking player enter the end zone, a defender can not enter.

3. Once a team has scored one point at on end zone, they must try to enter the opposite one.

3. Change of speed after skill
