Receive on volley 3v1 (15 mins)

30x20 area with 20x20 central space and 4 mini goals.

6v6 but could use more - 4 players would be minimum.

Blue defenders numbered 1-3 at each end.

R1 serves for R2 to volley to one of the other reds (R3,4,or 5) - if only 4 players then allow a return to R1 as a further option.

The 2 adjacent reds (R4 and R1 shown) drop to the corners to offer a 1st time pass from the initial volley receiver R3.

R3 passes to one of them , R4 is shown and then R2, 3 and 4 attack the opposite goals (S end).

A single blue defender (in order) from the goal end is active after the 2nd pass and once the attacking direction is known. All other players must clear the large area.

*communication

*movement of players to anticipate direction of 1st time volley/pass

Repeat the play for 2 mins ensuring previous server becomes next receiver, and queueing players swap in . Swap for blues to attack for 2 mins.

Now allow reds central receiver R2 to volley to any other red (includes server).

As before adjacent players show for the ball and the 3 active reds attack.

Blue pairs (1 from each end ) are active once initial volley is made.

Reds have 2 lives whilst attacking, this resets when they score.

If both lives lost the game swaps for blues to serve and attack.

Progress by allowing blues to be active as soon as serve is thrown.
