1v1 to 2 goals (15 mins)

1v1 to 2 goals - set up as above (goalkeeper is optional). 1st player dribbles toward a goal and shoots, they then immediately turn and defend the next player in line. As soon as the player in front of them has shot the next player in line attacks. Constant, attack, defend, join the back of the line (players joining the back of the line must make sure they have a ball). If there is a goalkeeper they can move between the 2 goals so the players must be looking to see where they are. (this practice moves through the players quickly and is high intensity so the line should be long to allow for rest periods between activity).

Coaching Points - pressure the ball quickly, show attacker 1 way (if there is a gk it should be towards their goal), jockey don't dive in.

3v3 to goal (25 mins)

3v3 Defensive positioning - set up as above with 3 attackers and 3 defenders (spare players off the field waiting). 1st the ball starts with the player on the left, and the 3 attackers try to score on goal and the 3 defenders try to stop them scoring (if the defenders win the ball they try to play out to a waiting attacker). Then start with the ball in the middle, then on the right. After all 3 start positions change defenders and attackers. After 3-4 goes, rotate attackers to defenders and defenders to attackers.

Coaching Points - defender nearest ball pressures, covering defenders should be in position where they can - protect goal, see player w/ball, see their attacker, cover pressuring defender, prevent ball being played in behind, and pressure pass to their attacker quickly (as ball moves between attackers so does the positioning of the defenders).

Progression - 4v4, attackers can switch position in play (eg. overlaps)

Constant 3v3 (20 mins)

Constant 3v3 - blues start with the ball attacking the red team, as soon as the game is over (ball goes out of play, blue scores or reds play ball to coach (if they win the ball)), a new red team comes on attacking and the blue team stays on to defend them (original red team leaves the pitch back to their side). Repeat, red team stays on to defend and new blue team comes on to attack them. Pattern is attack, defend, rest.

Coaching Points -as above, quick transition from attack to defence.

Progression - defending team can score, and if they do they stay on to defend again against a new team of attackers.
