End to end transition (25 mins)

Set Up: Divide players into two teams. The attacking team starts with four attackers, two in the attacking half and two in the defending half. The defending team has two markers in their defending half and one defender in their attacking half. The remaining players are on the side as shown in the diagram.

Instructions: The GKer passes the ball to one of his or her teammates (it can go into either half of the field) and the attacking team attempts to move the ball into a scoring position and finish (4 whites vs 3 blacks). In the above diagram, the attacking team is the white team. As soon as they cross the half way line, two black players enter the open half (now their team's attacking half) and two white defenders join them. Once the play has ended (a save, a goal, ball out of bounds), the black team now attacks with the two players who were defending plus the two attackers that are in the other half. All of the white players who were in that attacking movment leave the field immediately as does the black player who started in the black's attacking half. The blacks attack 4 vs 3 and try to score. Once they cross the half line, the whites set up their counter attack by moving players into their attacking half.

Coaching Points: Attackers must move to create space before receiving the ball. Qualityand timing of the pass from the servers. Look to receive the ball half turned whenever possible. Quality, variety and timing of the passes inside the middle grid. Quality and purpose of first touch (looking to play 1, 2 or 3 touch maximum). Disguise of movement and passes to set up finishing opportunities. Think ahead.
