Screen 1


- Player starts with the ball in the middle and passes to either players in blue (bibs)

- Both the players in blue try to hold onto the ball as long as possible until they get tackled

- Once the three attackers have got the ball they break forward and look to pass into the 2 attackers down the channels.

- Then try and score with a hit or a deflection


- Two defenders and 3 attackers are in the lined box of 8 yards.

- 2 attackers out wide and one defender in the middle protecting the middle channel

- 2 defenders ready to jump into the box after the first round for continuous rotation along with one defender for the middle top

- Attackers are continually swapping after each round, with them all trying out the different positions

Technical pointers:

- Attackers try to get the ball of the defenders as quick as possible to create more speed on the counter attack

- When receiving the ball by the circle, position your body so your facing the goal to create a fast shot
