The ball is advanced up the field through passes. Once a person catches a pass, he or she is allowed one step then must pass the ball to another teammate.
If the ball is intercepted, batted down, or not caught, than it is the opposing team’s ball to go the other direction starting at the point of incompletion.
The game should move fast. A person should not hold on to the ball for more than five seconds.
Physical contact is not allowed. This game should challenge the players to move their feet and play under control.
