4 v 2 + 1 Directional transition practices

4 v 2 + 1 directional transitional game. Four players are positioned in each box with an all time attacker designated in black.If the red team is in possession of the ball then the blue team sends two players into the other grid to defend and regain possession. When the 2 blue players win possession they successfully play the ball back into their own grid and join the play. Two red players must transition over and defend. At any time if the defending team knocks the ball out of the grid they are rewarded by a change of possession and a new ball is sent into their grid.
