PART 1:

Area 10x20m (divided into 2 squares). Adjust size to suit numbers.

Two equal teams are placed in each square with one ball each. The team is restricted to their own square. Players must pass the ball quickly around their own square, following these instructions:

 Restricted to two touch only

 One touch only

 Passing player must shout a number “One or Two”. Receiving player has that amount of touches.

 Players must pass the ball without talking “total Silence.

 Quick exchange of the ball

 Can you open your body in order to see the whole field (vision)

 Decide your next action before receiving the ball

 Make angles to support player on the ball

 Play the ball how you’d like to receive it

PART 2:

Same setup as PART 1 however one team starts with the ball. The team is restricted to their own square. The team with the ball play possession. Two players from the other square move in to make it 5v2. If the ball is won by the two defenders the drill is swapped to the opposite square, now 2 blue players become defenders. Change defenders regularly. 6 passes equals a goal.
