Un-Opposed-Tag Game (15 mins)

Organization:

-10 x 20 yard area (green cones) with starting gate in tall orange cone

-5 yard area around, two sides and back of red zone (blue cones)

Instructions:

Defenders can only move laterally between their two green cones. They are trying to pull the pinnie from the shorts of the attacker -who is trying to get through the gauntlet, passing the two defenders. The next attacker may enter the gauntlet once the player in front of them clears the first defensive line. If an attacker gets their pinnie pulled out they must pick it up and become the defender -in the same line where he got his bib untucked.

Coaching Points:

1) Finding the open space, identify where the defender is and try to use the open space

2) change pace and direction to fool a defender

3) imprrovise---Can you think of a great way to bet the defender?

4) Drop shoulder and change pace to wrong foot defender.

Progressions:

Start with one defender, and then add the second defender.
