This relay is like the fetch relay, except that after 1 person has been fetched, both players run back and pick up another player. The pattern continues until all squad members are running back and forth, picking up the remaining members. This relay can be exhausting for the first few people in line.
Use Whistle Mixer to create line/squads of 5-6.
Place lines at one end of area with one person opposite line at other end of area.
