Part Practice

The playing area is divided into 4x4 yard grids, with 25 grids in total. The players are split into 2 teams of 3 players with 1 Magic Man. To start the players pass and move freely across the area with one ball per team. The Magic Man must combine with one team's ball and then go and integrate in the other team's possession etc.

Players are provided with the following challenges;

- Play with minimal touches, once you have played your pass try to get into a new position to receive.

- Receive the ball in one box and take one touch to get the ball into another box before playing.

- Try to find as many times to play a longer pass, move into an adjoining area and play a one-two.

- As often as possible play into an adjoining square to where your team mate is for them to run on to (in front, to the side, behind)

- Once you have made your pass move as quickly as you can across two new squares.

Players were then asked to think of different combinations they may be able to complete and came up with the following;

- Overlap/Third man run

- Cross Over

- Aerial Passes/Switch play

One ball is now removed and the players play 3v3 + MM. Each team has 2 side goals to attack but they must complete 3 passes before they can score.

To further challenge play offsides from half way and/or a goal can only be scored by receiving in the square the goal is situated in.

SSG

Two of the goals are now removed and the area is extended to include the penalty area. The teams remain 3v3 but now a GK is introduced.

To begin the Blue Team must combine 3 passes before they can score in the 2 side goals. The Red Team can score immediately if they regain possession in the penalty area or if they regain in midfield they must link 3 passes before scoring. Offside is played from the central line. Rotate team roles at half time.

To finish, if the team playing out from the back score in the two side goals they retain possession and become the attacking team.
