GK's )if you have GK's in the game add in rules specifically for them such as allow them to use there hands to steel in the individual and group posession activities.

Foundations part 2 individual possession player attributes

players dribble the ball around the inside of the grid and cover each foundation M,X,R,I.players will also be given a number 1,2,3 or 4 on each team.

on coaches command they will call out a number the players whos numbers were called out will become defenders trying to steel the ball. in the example in the diagram #2 was called so both #2's will go to defend

If the defenders steel they will transition and try to score in one of the pug goals for a point

the players on the ball will gain points by keeping possession of the ball for the entire round.(30 second rounds).

Player characteristics

"Painting the Picture" of each one of the player's characteristics: * MESSI: Head up looking to get into the gaps using small, quick touches with the Pinky Toe (outside of the foot). * XAVI: Head up to recognize when there's no gaps/space, then change of direction (12 o'clock to 6 o'clock), ball comes out of your feet, and then head and eyes up getting into the new space. * RONALDO: Head up to see when there's a lot of space in front of you, then big touch to accelerate and get your head/eyes up and attack the space. *INIESTA : Head up to recognise small tight spaces ,using the inside/outside surfaces of the foot to unbalance defenders to make the space big enough to penetrate.

Foundations part 3 Group possession

-same set up as foundations part 2 but this time the teams share one ball and keep possession as a group. coach will call out a number
