Screen 1

3v3 with goal scorers for each team in the End Zone

Teams score by passing the ball to either Goal scorer in the End Zone

When a team scores, the End Zone player who receives the pass is released from the goals and the team turns and attacks in the other direction. Before they can score again, they must get a player up into their new End Zone (working on positional awareness, height options, change of pace, moving the ball forward)

Change It: Each player must get a touch on the ball before they can score in the End Zone

Change It: Players may only use push passes and if they sweep/hit then they lose possession

Change It: If a player gets hit on the feet, they have to replace the End Zone player immediately
