3v2 to 2v1 (25 mins)

How to Play

The area would be smaller than shown (35 x 15)

The Red GK plays a ball into the 3 attackers who try to score in the Blue goal as quickly as possible. Whichever Red player takes the shot must then defend against the 2 Blues, who are fed a ball by the players behind the goal.

Rotate so the Blues then become the dominant team.

Key Points

Stay between the ball and the goal.

Move feet quickly.

Communication.

Defenders MUST NOT cross over.

5v5 + 3 (25 mins)

How to Play

5v5 + 3 floaters. 2 floaters on the sidelines.

If the ball is played to one of the outside floaters, they must dribble onto the pitch and the inside floater takes their place.

Key Points

The defending team must assess the threat and get numbers behind the ball as quickly as possible.

Players recovering from the "wrong" side of the ball should try to win it on the way back.
