DRILL EXPLANATION:

  1. Attacking players play walking soccer, dribbling the ball and passing from the start line towards the goal-line.
  2. To score, one of them must dive on and execute a clean retrieve of the ball over the try-line. It cannot be the player who dribbled it over the line.
  3. Attacking players may not dribble the ball directly over the try-line from anywhere beyond the 10m “FOUL LINE” - a line set-up 10m out from the try-line.
  4. Defender prevents a score by falling cleanly on the ball and regaining their feet, either in the field of play or over the try-line.
  5. If defender does this, they grubber kick the ball back towards the start line. Attackers regroup and the drill continues.
  6. Rotate players and keep the time short.
