HOW TO PLAY
- Reds start practice as defenders, Blues as attackers.
- Reds have to steal a ball from a Blue and dribble it to the Bank.
- If an attacker loses their ball, they get another one from the piggy banks in one of the corners and re-enter the game.
- Keep count of how many dollars the defenders get, then change defenders after 60 seconds.
- Add one or more defenders
- Remove one or more balls so attackers can pass to help retain the ball
- Attackers have one ball between the team and attempt to keep possession through passing
- Awareness and vision of defenders/team mates
- Dribbling to protect the ball
- Proactive defending / tackling
- Turning away from defenders
