Ya but alot of conditioned games in GAA and Soccer in particular do as much harm as good.
Its all about learning.
There is no learning in one hop one solo.
To steal a term used by a friend, you are trying to create a “Learning space”
I have largely given up explaining mini games. We just play them and i ask them what they think they are getting from it. Keep at it either till they realise it within the session (but don’t flog it either) or they get it over 4 sessions. If what you wanted to achieve has not happened or they do not come up with the reasoning for it by your 4th attempt then there is something wrong with the design of it.
Very often they get it immediately.
Here is a book ye should all read. If i had this 20 years ago i think i would have shaved 3-5 years off my development
