7v7. 1 ball

Competitive and opposed.

Now they play a mini game. 1 player from each zone is allowed to move up and support the ball player at a time but must move back once ball is lost. This will create 3v2 overloads. Players cannot pass forwards unless they receive the ball facing forwards, no square passes or turns until they are in the attacking third.
