-Fundamental Movement Skills:
One soccer ball per pair of players.
One long rope to define the playing space.

One of the players places a ball by their feet.
The leader does a 1-2-3 count to give the one partner an opportunity to get away from the player with the ball.

When a player is tagged by their partner they count to three to give their partner an opportunity to get away.
