Setup : 25x 40 yd box. Place cones A & B 15 yds apart. Place cone C 15 yds away and directly in the middle, place cone D 7.5 yds apart and directly in the middle.

Activity: A plays to B and begins to move up to create passing trangle with C & D at position A1.

B receives the pass takes a touch and looks to play into C. After the pass, B moves up the pitch to prepare for an attacking run. C one touches back to D who plays a pass in toA's new position at A1. A1 looks to play a ball in to B's attack run at new position B1. B1 will attempt to finish with a one touch pass in behind the keepers to help keep keepers involved and active. They will collect bal and dribble back to A.

Players move clockwise (A to D, D to C, C to B). Play starts back at A again as soon as A1 receives their pass so there are always 2 balls in play.

Then C plays a ball into B for a 2v2 situation and lastly, E plays a ball in to C or A for a 3v2 situation. Then the process starts over. After the 3v2 situation is complete, players go to the back of their next line. I.e. a goes to c, c to e and e to a.

SSG-1v1 Everywhere (20 mins)

SSG- Divide pitch into thirds

Two teams of 7v7. Each team has a sweeper in their own third of the pitch. Sweeper must remain in their own third. All other players pair up with an opponent (coaches try to match up similar skill, size etc..). Players in the field can only tackle/challenge their own opposition partner. If ball is played back to the sweeper, they cannot be challenged by the field players. Sweeper has a maximum of 3 touches (i.e. must play the ball back out of their defensive 3rd by the third touch).

When in posession of the ball, teams attempt to score as normal by beating their opponent, combining with teammates, creative runs off the ball etc...
