Coaching Points:

~ Technical details: receive across body, pass to proper foot, open body to field

Intervals:

Setup:

3 Zone grid setup as shown (16x16 with 5 yard central zone)

2 Teams

8 attackers vs. 3 defenders

Activity:

Up-Back-Thru

4v2 in one grid, when the moment is right the attacking player in other grid (#7) should check into central zone, lay off to #8 while #2 gets forward to receive ball and play to #9.

Once there, the play is reversed (mirrored) to go the other direction.

Competition: Each team plays for 60 seconds before rotating attackers/defenders. 1 point for getting ball to farthest striker.

Coaching Points:

~ Opposite movement to lose defender in far grid (either by starting behind eye-line or by pushing into defender to create separation).

~ If defender doesn't track then #7 should turn and play directly to #9.

~ Wide players must make aggresive diagonal runs to receive ball at pace
