Organization:

2 30x30 grids (can adjust according to players' level)

As the defending team regains possession, they try to play the ball back to their own grid ASAP.

If the ball is successfully transferred into the other grid, the 3 defending players go back in helping keeping possession while the other team sends 3 players to regain the ball.
