Moat Game (15 mins)

Set Up:In a 50 x 30 area, we will place a 5 yard neutral zone in the middle of the field. We will divide into 3 equal teams, sizes may vary [Balls, pinnies, cones]

Activity: One team will start in each zone, and the ball will be played into one of the end zones. The team in the middle will send 4 defenders to make it a 6 v 4. The possession team is trying to make 3 passes then play a ball on the ground to the team on the other side and the defending team is trying to press to win back possession. If a team turns the ball over, they then become the defensive group and press immediately.

Progressions: [a] can play the ball in the air to the other side, must play ball on ground through 3 smaller goals in the central zone, [c] every 3 passes, the defending team can send in another player.

Coaching Points: speed of play, awareness, movement and support off the ball, techniques of receiving the ball properly, playing the ball forward when possible, support of players in forward positions
