On guard (15 mins)

Set-up:

-Players (X's) have to escape through any unguarded gate

-Once escaped, players return to the area and look for a different unguarded gate

-How many times can a player escape?

-Players run forward through the gate, laterally across and backwards through the other side at first to incroperate different movements

Coaching points:

-Have the players escape in lots of different way

-Adjust the distances for the gates to accomodate individual needs

-Watch the guards do not come into the practice

Progressions:

-Guards and players hops on one leg

-Have a tagger in the middle- players can still escape but try to avoid being tagged

-Players in the middle dribble their own ball trying to escape and evade the tagger
