Purpose: a directional/positional rondo, played 2 games at a time in opposing directions to create chaos and adapted thinking.

Blue and Orange play across the long dimension.

Red and Yellow play across the short dimension.

Object is for team in possession to move ball between their two Jokers in constant possession.

Teams may NOT use the jokers from the other game.

Coaching points:

-Awareness of both games

-Body shape upon receiving: quick cycling of ball up and back

-Quick movements by players to find space


-Allow players to use the Jokers from the other game

-After a certain time period, switch the orientation of each game (if teams were playing long way, now they play short way)

-Switch two teams (e.g. Blue now plays Red in long dimension, and Yellow plays Orange in short dimension)

-Add 1 or 2 internal Jokers who are available to both games
