3 Zone game

Organization: 9v9 or 8v8. Full goal on one end two pugs on other end keepers on team defending big goal. Ball starts from coach on end with puggs. White team stays out of final third until first pass is made.

Instructions: White can only score with no on in the white defensive third. The whole white team must be pushed out of back third. Blues score as normal. Offside rule applied by parent linesman. Switch sides at halftime so each team defends big goal.

Coaching Points: Communication starting with the white team goalkeeper to push out and press. Defensive units moving in sync with each pass. Give up backward or easy square passes. The team is vulnerable to long switch so pressure to force an inacurate pass.

If the blue are able to penetrate, high forward stays high and central as an outlet.

Progressions: Change the point of insertion when feeding ball in. Play in behind white back line. Give Blue a corner kick or deep throw in.
