AIM: To move the ball forward quickly, to score - aim to think of passing forward early - and then transition quickly in either attack/defense

HOW: 2 teams play a 4 v 4 game and can use any of outside bouncers, aim to go forward (as it is a directional game) and Green team are the bouncers during game once a team scores, the opposition team (who not scored) leaves the field and the other (green team) enter the playing field, at this time the Blue team get a ball from the centre of the field and attack the other end , quickly, while the Green team must transition QUICKLY to defend. Once a goal is cored by either team, the teams rotate again.
