5v5 with transitions (30 mins)

Setup:

Extend 18 yard box out so it's a 40x36 yard grid.

Defenders setup with #'s 1, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10

Attack setup with #'s 10, 7, 9, 11, 6

2 extra attackers in targets

Activity:

Ball starts with GK and defenders combine to build out of the back and score in gates.

If target player receives ball, switch across to other target and transition into attack.

Coaching Points:

+ Build out of back shape (wide CBs, #6 drop in center)

+ Front 3 should drop deep to prevent easy splitting ball to target and to invite playing short.

+ Press as a unit - compact the field

+ Quick transitions: attackers exploit space right away; defenders recovery runs to goal
