Conditioned game (10 mins)

Organization:

- Two teams of 3

- 25x15 grid including endzones

- 2v2 in the grid. Third player acts as a server.

Objectives:

- Teams score by dribbling the ball into the end zone

- As the attacking player dribbles the ball into the end zone, the server (other team) passes a ball into their teammate to create a quick counter.

- The player that just dribbled in must now transition back.

Coaching Points:

- First Defender delays by defending the space & slowing the attackers down.

- Use the sideline as a second defender to try and create a 1v1.

- Second defender transitions back quickly to get back behind the ball.

- When players are behind the ball, slow down the attack and try to win ball back.
