5V5V5 POSSESSION

IN A 40X40 OBJECTIVE IS TO CONNECT 21 PASSES IN A ROW BETWEEN PLAYERS. DEFENSIVE UNIT TRY TO STEAL THE BALL, TEAM THAT GIVES BALL AWAY BECOMES NEXT DEFENSIVE UNIT. MUST GET ALL 5 PLAYERS TO THE COACH BEFORE GOING TO DEFEND, CREATES A RESET MECHANISM TO TRAINING.

OBJECTIVE

OBJECTIVE IS TO CONNECT 21 PASSES IN A ROW. OTHER POSITIONS GET INTO SHAPE AND IMMEDIATELY START CONNECTING PASSES. THIS FORCES TEAMS TO SESS OUT QUICKLY WHAT ROLES NEED TO BE FILLED AND WHERE, GET THEM INTO GOOD SHAPE AND START CONNECTING.

SUCCESS STRATEGY:

LET THEM PLAY FOR 5 MINUTES, THEN FREEZE PLAY, HAVE ONE PLAYER ORGANIZE POSSESSING TEAM IN IDEAL SHAPE, THEN BEGIN WITH THE PRESS AGAIN. GET PLAYERS INVOLVED IN DECISION MAKING CREATING ACCOUNTABILITY. MAKE SURE YOU GET BUY IN FROM TEAM ON STRATEGY.
