Freekicks (15 mins)

Have the attacking team move the ball around. At the Coach's call of "FOUL" the attacking team are to place the ball for an indirect freekick. The Defensive team must get organised as quickly as possible.

- Have the wall immediately placed in front of the ball to prevent fast play of the freekick. Make sure the keeper is communicating how many and where the wall should be. Also have a defender behind the wall to counter any variance decoy activity from the attackers.

- Have attacking players placed either ends of the wall so they are potential freekick variance options. Have another potential decoy attacker to allow another variance.

For the attack,

- A can play a short pass to B who can shoot

- A can play a longer pass to C who can shoot

- A can play a short pass to B who can dummy shoot and make a through pass to D to shoot.

- A can play a longer pass to C who can dummy shoot and make a through pass to E to shoot
