Coaching Points:

- Force opponent to defend entire width, maximising the space between defenders

- Lead teammate into scoring zone with quick penetrating pass

Transition / Penetration

Ball starts in centre circle. Yellow team have 30 seconds to attack the main goal, if they go over their time the ball is turned over to the goalkeeper and the blue team have 30 seconds to play out through any of the 3 cone goals.

The blue team are practicing transition out of defence to midfield with men up, and the yellow team are practicing midfield to goal transition with men down. Once the teams switch they will have covered transition over the entire length of the field.

Coaching points:

- Utilise width to produce defensive gaps

- Direct forward runs from off the ball players

- Lead players into space

- Highlight the space available to the forward in behind the midfield

No more than 3 passes inside your own half. No return to your own half after crossing into opponent's half.

Emphasise that your attack begins as soon as you have the ball, regardless of your location on the field. Off the ball players must work to provide advanced options for the ball player. Offensive team should manipulate the space on the field to produce defensive gaps.
