Receiving to play forwards (20 mins)

Organisation - Boys split into groups of 4. 2 players work as target players & 2 play in the central areas to combine and get the ball to the target players. Targets players are asked to move on the outside once they have played the ball into the central area.

Challenge for the boys to start with.

- Can you get the ball into the other target player as quickly as possible ?

Let them make mistakes & lose possession of the ball, then pull them in to have a think about ways to retain the ball and still get it to the target player quickly.

The ball can not go from Target player to target player you must use a central player first.

1 - Player drops out of the central area to get on the ball & plays straight to target player

2 - Player drops out of the central area to get on the ball & plays into TM who plays out to Target player

3 - Players combine in the middle until the opportunity to play to target player arrives.
