Organisation:

-Widen the grid you previously had to make a 35 x 25 area.

-Teams will now play 2 v 2 and the attacking team has a choice to pass to either neutral player to make for a 3 v 2 overload.... If the defending team wins the ball(the neutral player that was involved must exit the field) and the team who has gained possession must pass to the other neutral player if they choose to in order to make make for a 3 v 2 overload

-If a team scores or the ball goes out of bounds the Coach immediately serves the ball to opposite team to attack....keep it flowing , keep the pace high -game like..

Coaching Points:

-Same as above for pressure and cover.

-Encourage the defending team if they win the ball to attack quickly if the opposition is disorganized! Steal it, supply it, support it.
