Starting Point

Play starts with the Coach playing the ball into either Zone A and two players from the opposite Zone B transition into defending against the four attackers in Zone B.

Play should always start with the coach after a shot on goal or if the defending/attacking loses control of the ball (not possession).

Play

The attacking team must make 5 passes before releasing a pass for any attacker to shoot at goal. No player can defend outside the marked zones.Without a GK players must practice finishing into a particular corner near side or far post as in this example

If the defenders win possession, they must play a pass back into their zone before a pass can release any defending player transitioning into attack. The attackers who lost possession can only prevent the pass inside the opponents zone. Once the pass has been played no player can defend outside either zone.

If using a GK, s/he must stay inside the 6yd box until the penetrating pass is made and then move accordingly.
