Squad Practice - Support play and movement (20 mins)

Organisation

Area: 50x30 yard area (2, 10x30 yard end zones).

Split the group into 3 teams with 2 end zone players at each end, and 1 floating player in the middle.

How to play

One ball per team, working the ball from end to end, playing off a target player at each end before receiving and working back in the opposite direction.

At one end, the target player is off the pitch and triggers the through pass by dropping into end zone to receive (e.g. forward coming short).

At the other end, the players just play through to the target player who moves across the area to receive (based upon the position of the player playing the through pass).

Progression

Blues v Reds - 7v7 + 4 targets and 1 floater.

Scoring system:

a. One goal if I can play to target player dropping short into end zone.

b. Three goals if I can use target player showing short to combine and release one of my team off the end of the pitch.
