**Help players identify open spaces, how and when to use short-wide pass, central pass, or long pass, and timing of runs. Players need to be able to read the game, not reproduce patterns.

***Numbers favor the possessing team when using the GK.

Additional phases that can be incorporated:

-3v2, 4v2, or 4v3 Possession in own half of the field. Defending team tries to score goal if they win the ball. Defending team maintains possession as long as they can.

-4v4+2 Possession on full field. The 2 GKs play as high target players for the team in possession.
