7v2

Set up two boxes of 12x12 next to one another and ensure there is a supply of balls beside each box.

Make sure there are two bibs in each box.

Two players start in middle, no need to wear bib, simply hold it.

Players around the box start to move the ball, if a player intercepts in the centre, switch over bib.

Trying and max out at two touches, try and even speed up to one touch if standard lifts. Working for 3mins max.

Looking for ball to be moved quickly in this exercise and good communication between players on outside.

Conditions attached:

- all in

- take two touches

- one touch

Then move into a fun game situation. Two players from Box A called into Box B to win ball back, so now becomes a 9v2.. team who retains the ball for most touches gets a point.

Fun punishment.
