General

  • The form starts when blue 1 passes to orange 1.
  • Orange 1, 2 and 3 ( possibly 4) try to score in the goal.
  • Blue 1 and 2 try, by working together, to take over possession of the ball on their strong side and then to score in one of the little goals on the centre field (circle size about 3 metres).
