6 is attacking team, objective is to progress the ball over the end line to score a goal. Players must take a first touch,.

** Change team after 12 minutes so the defenders get a turn of attacking. **

Player Tasks:

When you take your first touch make sure its towards the target.

Position your body so you can see the ball and the target.

Coaches Cues:

Can your first touch be towards the goal?

Are you able to see where the ball is coming from and where you want to go with it?

Does the ball need to stop with your first touch?

What foot should I take my first touch with?

Step Up's: Add another defender. All players must get a touch before scoring.

Hidden learning: if attack team looses the ball, need to quickly transition into a BPO position (make the field small) to try and win back possession / stop a goal being scored as quick as possible.
