Game Related Practice (25 mins)

The green player plays as a floater (for both teams).

There is a target player on the end line.

The game is played in the front 2/3 of the pitch with the light blues attacking the goal.

The Yellow team try to score by running the ball through the gates or by passing to the target player once they enter the neutral zone.

The light blues can start the next attack as soon as the reds enter the neutral zone by retrieving a ball from the side of the pitch or receiving a pass from the server.

Key Factors

All from previous practices plus application of the principles of the game.
