Activity: Each side starts with a ball at their feet and at the same time, they dribble into the gate, perform a turn and play the ball back to the line where they started. They then open their body up to receive a pass from the opposite side, then play the ball back to the cone at which they started. They go back to the line they started at.

5 v 5 + 3 (20 mins)

Setup: Roughly 25x20, dependent upon ability and fitness. 13 players total. [balls, pinnies, cones]

Organization: Game is 5 v 5 plus 3 neutral players, who can only play 1 touch. Certain amount of passes [4 - 10] is a goal. Once possession is turned over, the team who lost the ball looks to hunt, press and win the ball back immediately by pinning the other team in. Coaches can put a line in to show players where to restrict the play once they lose it.

Progressions: [1] limit touches of all players, [2] add targets on outside to play into

CP's: good reaction in transition, passing and receiving, movement off ball to create bigger space, team pressing, support, communication
