Basic (10 mins)

Organization:

A playing area is split into five separate grids . One player will occupy each of the five grids. You will need one ball.

Activity:

Yellow players pass the ball among themselves. After making a pass, the passer must change grids with another player right, left, or in the center of the area. Players are allowed two touches.

Variations:

Add a second group of five players that partake in the same activity with a separate ball. This will increase the pressure without adding defenders.

Coaching Points:

-Players receive the pass across their body in order to see the entire playing area.

-Regardless of movement, players should always be looking toward the center of the area and be able to see the ball to increase awareness and speed of play.

Progression 1 (15 mins)

Organization:

Each team is separated into their own five zone area.

Activity:

The blue team maintains possession in their own five zone area while two yellow defenders move into the palying area. At this point the game becomes 5 vs. 2. The blue player who makes the pass must change positions with any other blue player; always maintaining the balance of only one player in an area. The blue team maintains possession for as long as possible. Once the red team wins possession, they play across to their team and two players move across to defend.

Coaching Points:

-When maintaing possession, always stay open to the field. Receive the ball across your body as much as possible.

-As you move into another area, always be able to see the ball.

-Mental recognition to always move after you pass.
