Progressive 3v1

Set-Up: 3 grids (A, B, C) each approximately 10x10

Grid A has a 3v1, Grid B a 2v1 and Grid C a target player

Play starts in grid A. After 3 passes, the attacking team attempts a penetrating pass into grid B. One attacking player from grid A may join grid B to support the attack. Once in grid B, the team attempts to find the targe in grid C.

If the defenders win the ball, they play to the coach outside the grid.

After a successful transition, players move to "re-set" the game in grid C with a 3v1, moving towards grid A.

Alternate options: 3v2 in Grid A. 2v2 in Grid B.

Coaching Points

Time, angle, and distance of support | Vision and decision-making for forward penetrating passes | Support of entry passes | Creating space to penetrate
