Set up

2v2 (+4)

Organization

The aim is for one team to get the ball from one target to the opposite. Players on the side are targets just support players. Goals are only scored if players are able to get the ball from A to B or B to A via the middle. The outside players can not pass the ball to the forward to a target but can pass backwards to the player who started the exercise. This encourages the players to switch the point of attack in order to free up the middle. Outside players are now allowed two touches.

Set Up

3v1 (+2) 3v1

Organization

Ball starts with GK. He plays the ball out to one of his defenders. They must play though the middle field before going to goal. Only one neutral can join in the attack and one player from the back line can join in the attack. This makes it a 3v3. Any player can score once the ball as reached one of the center midfielders. If the one defender wins the ball they can shoot straight away.
