This is a grid game designed to improve the players’ ability to perform the hand pass under pressure


  • Divide the players into two teams of three to five players each
  • Mark out a grid 10m by 10m using cones
  • Team A must retain possession of the ball by hand passing it to each other
  • Team B gain possession by intercepting the ball, or when the ball hits the ground or leaves the grid
  • The player in possession may not be tackled
  • Each successful catch gains a score; alternatively, the team who makes the highest number of passes in succession wins
