Attacking Team vs Defending Team, att team has 5 balls to attack the def team with an additional bonus ball to be used at any points during the 6 chances.

If a ball leaves the playing area, the att team must get another ball to start another attack.

Once each ball has been used, the att team has the chance to use the bonus ball which is worth double points.

Progression - once each team has used all the footballs, they will enter round 2 where more double points are on offer. They can include clever combination play (e.g one-two before you score, third man running etc), one-touch finishes and others that can encourage clever & creative play in the final third.

Blue - Attacking Team

Red - Defending Team

Both teams have a chance to attack & defend and each team both have 5 balls to attack in any order they want.

One attacking player (Blue) will pick a football and start an attack from his first touch, he/she then has the option to pass or dribble to start that attack. If the ball leaves the pitch its a 'dead ball' and an attacking player must get another ball to start the next attack.
