4 v 4 with 2 bouncers on the sidelines for each team.

Divide the pitch into four quarters. Before a team can score they must play a longer diagonal pass from one quarter to the bouncer on the opposite side line.

Coaching points

When you see the longer pass is on, don't hesitate drive it into the area where the bouncer is straight away.

Try and stop the ball dead before making the longer pass. It is difficult to chip a long ball that is running away from you.

Try and make it bounce once in front of your team mate.
