Counter Attack and Transistion:

5vs5 with 2 servers. Teams are put in to defending and attacking zones and must remain in zone.

Ball starts from server. 2vs3 in defending zone. Defending team must start from compact inside the circle. The 2 defenders are trying to pass the ball in to the attacking 3 players in the other half. If succesful the 3 now attack the 2 defenders to the two goals to try to score. If the defending team wins the ball they look to score by paying in to the fron three players. If the ball goes out or your team scores the server will play out to the 2 in the back right away. The attacking 3 must first retreat in to the circle before they can pressure the ball.
