Things Players Do To Help Their Opponents Win
There are many things players do in games which can help their opponent win. How many can you and your teammates think of?
If you think of any that are not included below please take a minute and complete the Feedback box at the bottom of this page and let us know what they are.
1. Falling Down
A player on your team falls down and is slow to get back up. How could this help your opponent win?
2. Walking to Get Out of Bounds Ball
The ball goes out of bounds off an opponent. Your teammate slowly walks to get the ball to restart the game. Does walking slow help your opponents?
3. Stopping to Tie a Shoe
A player on your team stops playing to tie a shoe which has come untied. How could this help your opponent win?
4. Not Moving to Be In Best Position
When players do not move to get into the "Best Position" to receive a pass from their teammate with the ball, that teammate must keep and protect the ball while they look for their teammate in the "Best Position" to work with.
5. Pouring Water in Shoes to Cool Feet
It's a very hot day, hotter when playing on an artificial turf field, and your teammate pours water in their shoes to cool their feet off.
