Passes should be crisp and on the floor to continue a quick and realistic game tempo. Activity should be done in two touches then one touch.

Divide into two teams and see who can complete more reps per 3 minutes.

4v2 to 10v4

4v2 to 10v4

Blues play 4v2 against red. Blues trying to split the reds with passes, point for each split completed. If red wins the ball they play against the 4 blue. Reds have two objectives: 1) ten passes=1 pt. 2) play into red players in the middle and keep possession.

Stress to players the importance of patience both in the 4v2 and the 10v4. Move the ball quickly to unbalance and create overloads to play out the other side. Keep the game to 2 touches, one touch if possible. Be mindful of playing out of pressure and taking touches across the body. Movement off the ball and supporting angles for both teams is crucial for success of keeping the ball.

Play to 5, then switch players in and out.
