SAQ

Organization:

As above

Instructions:

Defenders (in blue) must stay on line between cones. Attackers try to get past all three defenders without having the pinnie (tucked into their shorts on one hip) pulled out. If defender catches pinnie, the attacker goes back to the start. Second attacker can begin once first attacker beats the first defender, or gets caught. Swap defenders every minute.

Coaching Points:

- Recognize position of defender

- Attack space

- Speed of thought and movement

- Use of change in direction if defender closes space ahead

- Can you use your body to protect the pinnie as you change direction?
