In addition, they are formed two teams In which the attacker team will be formed by 8 players and the defensive team will be formed by 7.

The exercise begins when the attacker team begins its attack with the first pass from one of its players located in the central zone. Next, The attackers must reach the rival goal through passes without losing the ball.

If you lose the ball, the counter attack You can only continue through the area in which it has been lost (They will no longer be able to use the two zones).

What's more, If the Defender team recovers the ball, they will be able to mark in the goal corresponding to half the field in which they have recovered the ball.
