How it Works

Players run in the pattern of the union jack as a pack. This shape requires that you run to a side of the field, a corner, an end, a corner, a side and so on until you have completed the whole flag.


Warm-up, familiarize with play space 


This activity can be modified to be completed on ice or on a court. Make the activity more difficult by having the athletes complete the pattern dribbling a ball, or stick-handling a puck or ring.
