2v1 into 3v2

Description

In the same 25x35 grid, cone off one end third. In this section there is a 2v1. In the second section (two thirds) you have 2v2. The player who passes the ball in to the 2v2 can join to create the 3v2.

The key is to teach the correct movements and passing options.

If Blue wins the ball they can attack 3v2 in the small goals. Red must win the ball back and counter.

Coaching Points

Patience and precision in the pass

Intelligent (and opposite) movements of the advanced players
