3v0

3v0

The greens receive the ball from end player A and link it through the midfield 3 making at least 1 pass before end player B.

End player B then passes to the blues who do the same and work the ball back.

This is a great opportunity to teach rotation of positions and developing the first time ball round the corner.

The team without the ball move to press but stay passive the whole time. This forces the players to work hard creating space while allowing for composure while learning

Coaching Points

- Rotate the deep player when building if the 1st pass isn't on

- Movement & angles to receive

- Always looking for the ball to striker and how that affects body position.

- Weight timing and accuracy of pass

3v2

3v2 with recovering defender

The green midfield 3 receive a pass from end player A and build through midfield playing a minimum of 1 pass before passing into the striker (end player B) 1 green player must break the line of the box to support the striker and finish into the goal.

As soon as Striker B sets the supporting midfielder, B gets a new ball and plays in the blue team creating a 3v2 with the green midfielder recovering back after the shot.

The blues then attack using end player A as a striker.
