- Using pre-made Match Game cards, the team will work together to try and complete all matches.

2. Once a player starts his turn, there is no talking allowed, otherwise... 10 burpees

3. If a card is flipped over that was already flipped... 10 burpees

4. If a match is available and the matching card has been flipped but it is missed... 10 burpees

5. Add in no talking at all... 10 burpees if someone speaks.

Coaching Points:

- Communication at the appropriate times is essential

- Plan your strategy as a team. ALWAYS have a plan.

- Mental focus and concentration.

- Perception of fatigue should NOT affect your focus. It is only a PERCEPTION. Fight through it.
