#### Chaos (individual or as a team)

• There is one passer in the field at position [6].
• The trainer or a playmaker stands with the balls at the net at position [3].
• The ball is introduced by hitting or pricking and there is a variation in short/long and hard/soft.
• The passer keeps the ball from the ground (prio 1) and provides the pass to [2/3] (prio 2) where the ball is caught by a team mate.
• This exercise can be played in two variants.
• A. [suitable for large teams]
• After the pass, a new player is rotated into the field and the passer joins the back of the line.
• High tempo!
• The team can be split in two, so that one team always picks up the balls from the other team.
• B. [suitable for small teams]
• The passer remains standing.
• He quickly takes up his position again after the pass and processes a new ball (10 in total).
• The other players spread out to collect the balls.
• After 10 passes the passer takes off and the ball is passed.
• High tempo!
