Field setup:

  • Place 2 x 4 x 2 pilons next to each other so that two streets of pilons are formed.

The course of play:

  • The players have to try to pass exactly through the pilon street and then sprint through it after the ball. 
  • Another player (white) receives the ball and dribbles to the other street. 
  • There this player does exactly the same towards player 3.
  • Player 3 starts again on the same spot as player 1.

Laws of the Game:

  • The ball must pass through the pilon street.
  • If you hit a pilon, you have to sprint to straighten the pilon and try again.
  • The ball must pass all pilons before the receiving player can take it.
