Skill (10 mins)

Equipment

- 1 ball

- 2 bibs (one for each defender, held in hand)

- ~20 cones

Setup

- Two end zones on a suitably sized pitch

- Two 'home' boxes near the halfway line

- Play starts with one side firing a long ball to the opposite zone

- On receiving the ball, the nearest defender tries to intercept the ball

- The receiving team aim to play a long pass to the other end zone, after which, the player playing the pass becomes a defender, gets the other defenders bib, and retreats to that half's central 'home' box

- The first defender passes the bib over to the long passer, stays in the end zone and becomes an attacker

- Play cycles from this point onwards.
