Organization:

Set up as shown

1 point for successfully making it across. 1 point if defender grabs attacker's penny

Coaching Points:

Keep penny tail from being exposed to defender (body positioning)

Acceleration and deceleration

Creativity (spins, rolls, "Look at that over there")

Progressions:

Make channels narrower

Add soccer balls instead of penny tails

Add extra defenders

Progressions:
