Older group after 2v2

Before this game, warm up with repetition and cover pressure/cover. Play for 10-12 minutes.

3v3 shadow defending. When wide red player has the ball, we create Pressure/Cover/Balance, cover/balance defenders slightly pinched towards ball. When center red player has the ball, Cover/Pressure/Cover - balanced cover on both sides. Defenders must stay in channels, don't try to steal the ball. Ball possessors don't penetrate, just keep posession. After 1-3 minutes, switch, repeat again. Play for 10-12 minutes total. Have these grids ready to get into right after 2v2. These six players will join another group of six players to progress to 4+4 vs. 4 defenders.
