Quick ball movement
Area: Four 10x10 squares with three players in each. Three oranges are placed in the central area. 15 players are shown (It can be done with 20 players, five teams of four, 4v2 in boxes)
1. The coach serves in a ball to the blue team. One orange defender runs in the 10x10 area to win the ball.
2. The blue team must make four or more passes before they switch the ball to another box. If they do, another orange defender will enter the box while the defending orange player will move back into the middle.
3. If the orange defender wins the ball, they pass it to an orange player (or other group). If they do pass to a teammate, that player will pass to another group. The blue team then become the defenders.
4. Defenders in the middle can block the passes.
