Rotations (15 mins)

Midfielders need to rotate to create space to receive the ball themselves or for their teammates.

.

Whichever direction the ball travels, the players rotate the same direction.

.

Deepest player will become an advanced player, one advanced player will rotate across the pitch, while the other advanced player drops to become the deepest player.

.

One player should move into space and be available to receive the ball.

.

COMMUNICATION IS VITAL - From CB's and Midfielders

Progression (15 mins)

Now a Defender can move in to the end zones and block the pass straight across. The Pass must still be made before the play can come into the central zone. So one of the midfielders needs to play a bounce pass. Rotations will need to occur to give the midfielders some space to play to bounce pass. Or a Go-To-Show must happen. CB's and Midfielders need to be sharp and communication must be good.
