Activator/Dynamic Stretch

Organization: 8x8 Square (Adjust if needed), 6v2

Coaching Points: Quality of technique (passing/receiving); Communication; Movement to receive and movement to open space elsewhere; Body shape; Angles and distances of support

Progressions: After set period allow for dynamic movement and stretches to occur. Can also add multiple squares/groups and have them race to a new one on a particular trigger.
