SET UP:

Two equal grids 20 yards apart (manipulate size of grids based on age, ability, etc)

6 balls

4 training bibs

ACTIVITY:

Teams play 5v2 inside grid, 5 players look to keep possession. Defenders hold training bib.

If defender intercepts and controls ball or dispossesses attacker with ball, immediately change roles.

On coach's command "change", defenders drop bibs and sprint to opposite grid; attackers sprint to opposite grid with player in possession of the ball dribbling at speed to other grid.

Last 2 players into the second grid become new defenders, pick up bibs already lying inside grid.

VARIATIONS:

1. Limit touches

2. Add points for consecutive passes.

3. Must create combination play to score.

4. Players get 1 point every time they turn ball over or every time they are last into 2nd grid - player with fewest points at the end wins.
