Target Exchange

4v2 inside the the playing area which is split into two halves. Plus a target player along each endline. The attacking players must complete a set number of passes before scoring a point by passing into the opposite target player.

(2) Pass Requirement Plus Touch Restriction

(3) Players are restricted to play within their own halves
