Practice

The pitch is split off into 2 zones. There is a big goal at each end and within each zone there are two corner goals facing the big goal.

The first area is set up as a GK + Back 4 playing against a Front 3. The defensive team (Reds) must make 5 passes before they can shoot into one of the side goals. If the Blues gain possession in this half they must score as quickly as possible.

In the second area the pitch is set up as a Midfield 3v3 + GK. They also have a ball and the Blue Midfield must make 5 passes before they can score into the side goals. If the Reds gain possession in this half they must score as quickly as possible.

Progression 1

To progress, once a team has played their 5 passes they must pass into the opposing area to score as quickly as possible. EG; Red Defence make 5 passes and play into their Midfield. The Blue midfielders must quickly attempt to get their ball into one of the side goals before they can defend. Whilst their ball is still in play it would create a 3v2 overload.

The set up in the Midfield zone remains as before; Blues score in side goals and Reds score in the big goal.

Finally, the rule adaptation is added to both halves of the pitch. If the Blue Midfield manage to make 5 passes and play into their Front 3 then the Red Back 4 must score in the side goal before the player in possession can help defend.

Progression 4

The small goals are now removed and the practice develops to one ball. Players are initially locked into their zones as before. The Reds must play 5 passes before the ball can be transfered into Midfield. Play can then be supported to leave a 2v2 in the Defensive zone.

If the Blues regain possession then they can counter as quickly as possible.

Finally, finish with free play.
