12v6

12v6: 2 teams vs 1 team

-The team in the middle needs to press high but also stay compact. Nothing gets played through the middle.

- If the team in the middle finds a way to get the ball out, then team that lost it is in the middle.

Variation:

- If defending team gets more than 8 passes played against them, they have to sprint to end and back.

- if you get ten passes against you, you lose the game.

Coaching points: If one or two go 100% and the other players for 50% or 80% it won't work.
