Set-up

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

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
