Torro (5 mins)

Simple game of torro to begin with to get boys warmed up and used to getting a touch of the ball in a confined space. Keep ball off players in the middle. Introduce different stipulations like 1 touch, 2 touch, 1 touch 2 touch 3 touch 2 touch 1 touch.

Ensure players know that this is a possession exercise and not just a muck about and stitching players up. Far better being on the outside so keep it simple. Depending on numbers, could introduce a 3rd player in the middle trying to retrieve ball.
