Description and Graphics

Player A starts the soccer exercise by dribbling the ball towards the red cones in front. He has to pass over the line of the cones, then plays the ball to Player B who has to receive it in the square. Player B can decide in which direction to leave the square. He can move and change direction within the small area but he cannot turn back, when he is already outside. While Player B is dribbling the ball out of the square, Player A has to react and sprint to the other sided server to ask for a ball from him. After passing the ball back to the server, Player A turns around the stick and sprints to defend against Player B. After Player B leaves out the square, he has to dribble around the stick on the same side, then he tries to score into one of the small goals.
