Snatch is a practice game that trains: passing, receiving, dribbling, shielding, aggressiveness, decision making, and communication.
- Set-up two rectangles large enough to accommodate passing amongst players
- Divide players into 2 teams.
- Assign a number to each player so that each team has a corresponding numbers (example: 1, 2, 3,4 on team one and 1, 2, 3, 4 on team 2).
- Each team moves around the rectangle dribbling and passing to each other.
- Coach calls a number and the player from each team with that number runs to the other team’s side to try to take the ball.
- If the attacking player kicks (or forces the other team to play) the ball out of bounds he scores 1 point for his team.
- If the attacking player wins the ball and passes it to a teammate back in his own square, he gains 3 points for his team.
- Each round of attack should not last more than 30 seconds.
- Play should continue for several rounds, making sure all players have a chance to attack.
- Call more than one number to be the attacker.
- Have teams protect more than one ball.
