To start of you will need to create three or four squares as safe zones.

Have two players start of as the defenders, in the diagram these players are blue. In your session have them hold a pinnie or a cone.

To start the game the coach shouts "Go". The players have to leave their safe zone and try to get to another without being tagged by the defenders. If they get tagged the defender must drop the cone or pinnie in their hand and quickly get to one of the safe zones. The person who was tagged now assumes the role of the tagger.
