Give and Go Warm up + 2v1 Game. 20x10 Yard Grids.

I. Wall-Pass warm-up

- 2 players one ball one big cone. Players work and playing give and go's around. Players perform 5 each way before switching roles. Have players also work on different changes of directions once they play the ball (step on, cruyff, etc)

II. 2v1: 20 x 10 Grid

1 defender in each half. Offensive players on each end driving and trying to beat the first defender and the next one. If they lose the ball at any point, they then become the defender. And defender goes to back of attacking line.

B. Same set up as A but now it's 2v1 in each half. If the two lose it at some point they become the defenders.

Coaching points: 2v1's decision making is key. If they have space, what should they do? if defender closes in what should they do?
