6 vs. 2 Keep Away


This keepaway game should be played on a large field, 25x40 yards, with two unmanned goals. One team of six and one team of two in contrasting colors.


Team of six must pass the ball four times before they have the green light to score. If the ball is stolen by the two defenders but the six get it back or if the ball goes out of bounds they must restart the passing count. If the two defenders steal the ball they may shoot at any time. Both teams can score in either goal. Play to two goals then switch defenders.
