Additional game-related conditioning drills

North-south-east-west conditioned game

In this game, Team A (in yellow) attacks Team B (in red). Normal touch rules apply, with five touches allowed, and the ball is played between the legs. During the game, the Strength and Conditioning coach can send a player to the north (green bag), south (purple bag), east (grey bag) or west (brown bag). This can create space for Team B to attack.
