Organisation

Pitch size should vary depending on age group.

Teams A and B are working together. Team C are defending.

Team A passes the ball around their area keeping possession away from the three incoming defenders.

When 5 or more passes have been made Team A are able to switch possession to Team B via a lofted pass.

Once the ball has reached Team B the other three defenders are released to go in and close down while the other three return to the box in the middle.

A point is scored for a successful lofted pass.

Swap defending team regularly.

Coaching Points

- Lofted passes should be accurate and not bounce in between the grids.

Progressions

- Make two touch in the area.

- More/Less than 5 passes have to be made first.

- Defending team score points for tackling the team in possession.
