6v4 + goalkeeper from bottom of center circle to goal.

4 attacking players start at bottom of center circle with 2 wide players (A & B) ahead of the center line.

4 attacking players look to connect with either wide attacker (A & B) in order to go forward to goal, 4 defending players press the ball and look to deny entry pass. Attacking team cannot go forward if they do not connect with A or B.

Once attackers get ball to A or B, attack with speed into space, wide players should look to attack off the dribble allowing an overlapping running to get around them.

Remaining attackers need to get forward quickly, do not make straight or predictable runs, make crossing or bent runs to get separation from defenders. Wide players should look to play the early cross whenever possible while all 10 players are running at goal. Deep crosses rarely find targets and are easier for goalkeeper and defenders to deal with.

If activity turns into a possession session, enforce a 12-second rule, team has only 12 seconds to get a shot on goal after connection with players A or B.

Make sure defenders press first ball, do not allow them to drop into deep defensive positions.

PROGRESSION:

Add counter goals for defending team to attack if they win the ball.
