Drill (20 mins)

Set up:

3v3+3 as shown. Object is for team in possession (black to start) to maintain that possession with assistance from the reds. Play intensely for 5-10 minutes, then swap teams (greens go outside, black come inside to defend). Repeat.

Coaching points:

-Quick decisive movement by the outside players and supporting 2, and the inside 'play maker'.

-Open body shape to receive.

-Defenders stay compact, move as a unit to cut off passing lanes.

Progression:

-Rather than play for a fixed time, incorporate a transition: when greens win the ball, they quickly distribute to a red, then swap places with black and continue in possession until black win the ball back.
