9 v 9 to Corner Boxes (35 mins)

Setup: Area is 44 x 40 yards, split in half, with 4 corner boxes, 18 players total [9 v 9], [balls, pinnies, cones]

Organization: Teams play 7 v 7 in one half of the field, with one player from each team, set up in opposite [diagonal] boxes. The team starting in possession will attempt to make 4 passes, before switching to their target man on the other side. When in possession, the target man in their half can "float" and serve as an extra attacker, making an 8 v 7 on that half. Once the ball is switched, those players return to their box. After each switch, we try to make a completed pass to finish the move and look to repeat on the other side.

Progressions: [1] limit touches, [2] allow through ball into other half, using midway line as offside line, before playing to target, [3] add a goal and GK at each end, when ball is played into a box, now a serve for a cross is made, but must think about defending counter attack too, [4] open to normal game without restrictions

Coaching Points: awareness, technique in receiving and passing, checking shoulder, playing in tight spaces, decision making, balance in attack, defensive pressure and cover, not to allow the switch
