3v3+1 into 3v1s (30 mins)

This activity combines combination play and counter attacking principles.

It begins with the coach playing a ball into the central grid and 3v3+1 begins. Players will look to make 3 quick passes and then find their target player outside of the grid in the direction of the goal they are attacking. 2 of the players from the grid will immediately join the target player in the attack and will go 3v1 with the defender waiting.

At first, the defender will allow the pass into the target player to allow the counter attack to begin. Then the coach will progress the activity with the defender looking to contest the pass into the target player.

After the counter attack, players return to the grid to restart.

Progression:

If defender wins the ball in 3v1 situation, they immediately begin a counter attack in the opposite direction with a 6v2 (neutral player joins new attacking team) toward the opposite goal.
