Stay out of the space

The park is divided in to 12 different zones.

Play begins with one simple rule in place - You cannot pass to a player who is in the same zone as you are.

One of the easiest drills to setup and also one of the most effective to stop players occupying the same space - this happens LOADS during the transition from 7s to 11s and up to u17/19 levels.

Progression to make it more game realistic is to remove the RED dividing line in the goal mouth area to allow runs to near post from forwards. However until the players get the idea of the drill i would recommend the dividing line stays in place.
