The players are paired and begin flat on stomachs.

One player is a chaser and the other the runner.

Runner has one pinnie tucked in to the back of the shorts.

Runner needs to evade the tagger. After tagging, they again lay down and switch roles.

Coaching Points:

Work on quality of the evasive moves.

No running "away" from opponent. Goal is to run AT opponent and evade a flag pull.


Have all players lay down except a runner and chaser.

The runner can escape the chaser by laying down next to another runner.

The new runner then must take off and avoid being flagged.

Set up grids with plenty of space to encourage spreading out (runners do not want to be close because they are an easy lay down target)

ADD BALLS with added coaching point of keeping the ball on the foot - small touches on the ball - pullback when in danger - spin and use moves.
