  • Setup

    Split into teams with the number of defenders numbering 25-40% of attackers (8 v 2, 9 v 3, 10 v 4) depending on numbers.
  • Step 1

    Everyone must remain inside the diamond. Attacking team (A) start with the ball.
  • Step 2

    Attacking team (A) must use hands to work the ball around the diamond, avoiding team (B) who try to effect a turnover.
    If you want to modify this for juniors, remove tackling and instead try to knock the ball free.
    Loopy handballs are discouraged.
  • Step 3

    Team (A) need to keep on the move to provide multiple options for the player under the pump.
  • Step 4

    Once (B) effect a turnover, or a scrimmage forms, or (A) run out-of-bounds, change team (B) chasing players.
