Setup

- 3v3 in midfield, plus neutral players on either end and one neutral player in the middle.

- Teams score by getting the ball from one side of the grid to the other. Once they have done this they attack the other side.

- Players can rotate positions, however they must have 2 deep midfielders and one attacking midfield, so rotation is key. (links into overall system of 4-3-3 with two deep lying midfielders)

- As shown one blue player must run over the half way line to become 2nd deep lying midfielder once a goal is scored. (encourages rotation of midfield 3)

Key Coaching Points

- Angles and distances of players

- when in possession make area wide as possible

- look at movement of attacking midfielder and rotation of players

- Be wary of work to rest ratio of middle 3 defending

- accuracy of pass

- when how and where to make runs

- quality of movement
