Possession Warm Up (10 mins)

This possession warm up game is ideal for match day as well as training.

Aim

Each team must try to get the highest number of consecutive passes during their spell as the team in possession.

Organisation

3 teams of 4 players, with 2 floating players.

Team A (yellow & green) are the team aiming to keep possession. They can use any of the players on Team C and any of the floating players.

Team B (red & white) are defenders. Their aim is to break up play and limit the number of passes made by Team A.

Team C (black & white) occupy one side of the penalty area each. They can patrol up and down their side looking to receive the ball and play it back out to the team in possession.

The floating players always play for the team in possession.

After 3 minutes, rotate the teams so that:

- Team A (possession) take up each side of the penalty box and Team C.

- Team B swap with Team A and look to keep possession.

- Team C (perimeter support) swap with Team B to be the defenders.

After another 3 minutes, rotate the teams so that each group has a turn at each role.

- Intelligent use of space
