Screen 1

Organization: Grid 25 by 25. 6 vs 4. Passing and Possesion.

Instructions:

For the first drill, we have two groups playing 4v2 (defenders versus attackers) in a 25x25-yard area, with a further four players around the outside. The server feeds in to the two reds, who must keep possession playing one- or twotouch. When the defending team wins the ball, outer reds now enter to challenge 6v4. Again, once possession is turned over again, players reset and play continues. Rotate the two central red attackers every two minutes.

Coaching Points:

This practice rehearses movement, angles, short passes, body shape, weight of pass and decision making.

Screen 2

Organization:

We now use 20 players, 5v2 in the end zones and 4v2 in the center (2). This is a 45x15-yard area split into thirds, with players invited to play one- or two-touch (depending on ability).

Instructions:

The attacking team of five begins with the ball in zone one, with the intention of passing it into zone 2 (which is 4v2), where defenders aim to prevent the ball making it to the other end. If attackers are successful, play now comes back the other way

Coaching Points:

This practice rehearses movement, angles, short passes, body shape, weight of pass and decision making.
