    A game that focuses on improving players passing abilities.

    How to Play

    1. Two teams of four players each start inside a 40 x 40 space.
    2. The team with the ball works around the grid by passing the ball in any direction. The goal on offense is to score by passing to a player on their team who runs inside of either of the scoring boxes.
    3. No running with the ball is allowed.
    4. A turnover will occur if the ball hits the ground, or if a ball is intercepted.
    5. Only offensive players are allowed inside the scoring boxes.
    6. Defensive players cannot strip the ball from offensive players and must remain arms-length distance when defending.
