Red players play the a ground ball into the feet of the blue player and then press the blue player. The blue player receives the ball and looks to dribbile past the red player into one of the gates.

Attackers focus on exaggeration and quick feet to send the defender the opposite way.

Stage 1: Playing out of Pressure

Stage 1 is focused on receiving the ball to play forward

Whichever player has possession inside the grid has the red (Neutral) players on their team.

Coach plays a ball into one of black or blue and they will try to connect a pass to the red player on the opposite side from them.

Lets say black has the ball his job is to receive the ball from the outside player and connect his pass to the opposite side.

An example would be if black has the ball, but he can't get the ball to the opposite side he could look to drop the ball to the neutral player closes to him and then spin off his defender in space to connect the pass to the other side.

Once a pass is connected to the other side the drill is over and a point is awarded to the team who connected to the other side.

Give a 15 second time limit. Dimensions of the grid are 15 x 10.

Coaching Points: Body Positioning, Movement and Domination without Ball, Awareness, Relation to Position (Relates to any position)

Stage 2: How 1v1 relates into 2v2 and 3v3 (20 mins)

This stage is more than a progression of stage 1, this will focus on how a 2v2 or 3v3 relates to a 1v1 situation.

2v2 possession will focus on oppositve movements where both players react to each other. Play on two receiving lines, highest player reacts to the deepest player as he can see the ball and player whereas deepest can only see the ball. Constant opposite movments as a two.

Progression: 3v3 possession will focus on a rotation of three players, three different receiving lines, opposite movments, one player remains higher up with one staying back to trigger the rotation. The player who sets the pass spins out into pressure and traffic to attract the defender which will release his teammate into space for the ball.
