4v1->3v1 (20 mins)

The usual 4v1 & 3v1 progression. Then, add in protecting the ball after switching play.

Setup:

4 10x10 grids

2 Neutrals that support play

2 teams of 4, with a player in each grid

Activity:

Neutrals join attacker in grid to play 3v1. When possible they switch play to another grid and run to support play. Attacker must shield and protect ball until support arrives.

Coaching Points:

Runs of support players must be to where attacker can play.

Protect the ball with body and dribble into space.

Other grid players should be losing their mark and checking back to ball.

Progressions:

Add a 2nd ball, which would force more 1v1 shielding and dribbling in square.

Add a 2nd ball and 2 more neutrals, which forces more concentration to see where ball could be coming from.
