Organization:15x20 outline with 2 players from each team stationed on the inside of the corners of the field, 2 players from each team on the inside of the pitch, and 1 neutral player.

Instructions:Players on the sides of the pitch must localize their play to the corners, and hold their positions, players on the inside must create good movement to stay open for a pass. 1 passing string (4 passes) equates a goal. teams play for 2 minutes, then outside positions rotate into the middle positions, and middle positions rotate to outside positions. 4 rotations total...phase 1 (rotations 1&2) play 2 touch and phase 2 (rotations 3&4) play 1 touch. Encourage higher tempo, and better rythem all restarts begin with a quick free kick which must be taken within 5 seconds after the dead ball.

Coaching Points: phase 1 - forced movement from the inside players to create passing lanes as follows: Left, Right, Split, and switch of play. Phase 2 - passing accuracy, and developing vision of play up to 2 passes early to ensure players know where to play before starting the attempted passing string (4 passes).

7v7+1 Playing through the lines (30 mins)

Organization:

Instructions:Players must connect 4 consecitive passes in their defensive third to unlock the middle section of the field, then must also connect 4 consecitive passes to unlock the attacking third before moving into the attacking third of the field where the attacking team can then score after connecting 4 consecitive passes before they can score. Once a portion of the field is unlocked, teams can always play backwards into unlocked zones.

Coaching Points: Phase 1- Use 1 and 2 touch rule (If a player takes 1 touch, the recieving player then gets to use 2 touches, then the following player must only use 1 touch etc etc) to keep possession disallowing the defense to get close enough to defend. Phase 2- encourage switch of play with a 1 touch pass to allow better control after a longer switch, then encourage creative first touches after a switch of play. Phase 3- Allow dribbling to take the space after the switch of play, once the space is closed, encourage 1 & 2 touch rule again.
