This is a fun game to develop the feint, side step and checking techniques


  • Mark out a grid 15 to 20m by 10m
  • Mark a zone approximately 2m wide across the centre of the grid 
  • Two attacking players are positioned at one end of the grid; one defending player in the centre zone
  • The outer players must run forward together and pass through the centre zone while avoiding the defending player
  • The defending players use the checking technique to block the attacking players
  • The attacking players lose one life every time they are tagged by the defending playe
  • When an attacking player loses all their lives they become the defending player
