Part Practice 1

The playing area is split into 2 pitches. There is a 1+3v1/2 in each area. 4 passes must be made by the 3 outfield players and GK before a point can be scored by passing to the GK who must collect with his hands and roll out. If the team of 2 gain possession their aim is to score. A goal is worth 1 point but if a pass is linked before the goal it is worth 3. Rotate defending players.

Part Practice 2

The area is now extended slightly width ways and the central goals are removed, with both pitches combined to make 1. The set up is now 1+4v2 to begin, again 4 passes must be made before the ball is played to the GK who must scoop up the ball and play out. If the team of 2 regain possession then they must switch the play and transition occurs to create a 1+4v2 in the other half. There is a central area that one of the out of possession players may occupy to create a safe passing option before the ball is switched.

To progress, after a certain number of passes another defending player may recover to the area to make a 1+4v3 and if the challenge requires 1+4v4.

4 mannequins are set up in a Y shape facing towards the goal. Player 1 at the base of the Y sets the ball to Player 2, who peels off to the opposite side and plays a 1/2. Player 3 then spins around the player and the ball is played as a through ball for a shot. Each player then moves forward a position. Player 3 returns to the position of Player 1. Challenge players to play within 2 touches.

Pattern 2/3

Player 1 passes long to Player 2. Player 3 then spins round the mannequin and 3 sets to 2. Player 2 then switched the ball out to Play 4 who shoots.

Player 2 stays in position, Player 3 takes the role of Player 4 and Player 1 moves to Player 2. The practice is then repeated on the opposite side.

This pattern can be modified for Player 3 to set to Player 1 who makes an overlap before the ball is played to Player 4.

Again, Player 1 plays long to Player 2. Player 2 switches to Player 4 who drops safe side of the mannequin, Player 3 then spins off from their mannequin to receive a central diagonal through ball.

Player 1 rotates to Player 2. Player 2 to Player 3 and Player 4 remains. The ball is now passed into Player 4 to start the game and the pass is received on the opposite side of the pitch. The first receiver always drops into Player 3 position.
