  • Setup

    Split players into two teams, red and yellow, who each have their own stations (A to E) which they divide amongst evenly. Give a ball to the first red and yellow player at station (A). This is a race between the red and yellow teams to score a goal.
  • Step 1

    On the coaches whistle, red and yellow (A)'s kick a tumble punt out in front of (B) who leads from the cone and gathers.
  • Step 2

    (B)'s gather and steady before kicking to (C)'s leading diagonally across the square
  • Step 3

    (C)'s mark and dish off a handball to runners (D) who haved time their run from the other corner (but the same side) as (C)
  • Step 4

    Runners (D) steady then kick to leading (E), then follow up their kick by running towards (E)
  • Step 5

    If (E) marks, they go back and take a set shot, otherwise if the ball hits the ground, (E) can give a handball to (D) who kicks the goal.
  • Step 6

    Point scoring as follows:-
    The team whose full forward marks the ball FIRST can take the normal amount of time for a set shot. If they kick a goal, 1 point, regardless of whether the other team has already goaled from a crumb.
    If one teams kicks a goal and the other misses (regardless of a mark or not), 1 point.
    If teams both kick goals from non-marks, the team who kicks the goal FIRST - 1 point
