  • In each box, the attacking team plays keepaway from the other team.
  • If the defending team steals the ball, they try to play it to the other box where two of their teammates are waiting.
  • When the pass is made, the two players who stole the ball quickly follow their pass in to support.
  • The other team then send two players in to steal the ball back.
  • Play continues to transfer from one box to the other.
  • If the ball goes out of bounds, it goes over to the other team for a kick-in or throw-in.
