2v1 to goal (15 mins)

2 v 1 to Goal

Put players into even lines at the orange stating gates. Place the balls in one line.

The coach serves as the first defender until everyone gets the hang of it. Then add a live defender who can intercept and win the ball and pass it back to the coach. This gives the attacking pair a chance to win it back to continue their attack. (teaches transition)

At first, let them choose the dribble or pass to beat the opponent.

Add a rule that they must execute a pass before they can shoot to promote passing. If two passes are made then the goal is worth 5 points.

-Play for about 15 minutes

-Now it is time to scrimmage! 4v4 or 5v5
