2 v 2/3 v 2 in each area, can play with or without a goalkeeper. Players are stuck in their areas unless they make a pass to a player in another area who SUCCESSFULLY controls the ball. Play a normal game so the object is to score more goals than the other team. Rotate positions around!

Thirds

Defenders can dribble into the midfield half with the ball but in order to get into the attacking half must pass to the attacker. Players are otherwise stuck in their areas.

Progressions

Change the numbers in each area to challenge the players
