This is a fun game to develop the Crouch Lift technique

Organisation

  • Mark out a grid 15m x 15m using cones
  • Divide the players into two equal teams; one the attacking team and one the defending team
  • Place a number of balls randomly throughout the grid 
  • On the whistle, the attacking team must pick up as many balls as possible in 30 seconds
  • The defending players may pressurise the attackers, but may not guard the ball  
  • The teams switch roles after 30 seconds
  • The team that completes the most crouch lifts wins

STEP Variation

Equipment - The coach can further heighten the intensity of the game by reducing the number of balls
