Directional Practice

8 v 5 playing through lines directional practice

To score the players must get from one side to the other, the reds must play one pass before it can go back into the middle zone. If the yellow defenders intercept then they play to coaches for a goal.

Key Targets: Coach the midfield to get on the half-turn, movement off the ball when in possession.
