Building Through Thirds (25 mins)

Focus: Build up using combination passes. Look for body position and angled support. Clever movement is key.

Numbers: 1v1 in attacking zones, 2v2 (4v4) in middle zone. Adjust field size accordingly.

1) Players must build throught the phases of attack. Defender starts with ball and must pass to middle zone. Players can pass backwards if need be, so defender must be ready to recieve.

2) Striker may only recieve ball inside attacking zone. If done so, player from middle zone must join in to overload the attack. Can either be player who played the pass or other player making the far side run. Striker CANNOT score on first reception, must combine with incoming player.

3) Variation: Allow striker to check in, which would then in result in an overload. Defender must stay in their zone. Find the pass into attacking zone and overload once again. Finish.
