Activity 1 (20 mins)

Objective: Possess to move thru zones

Duration: 20 minutes

Description: Three zones, one player from each team in each zone. Possession game 2v1, Green and Blue with Red Defending is shown. Work to play through zones. If defense wins, they try to keep possession. Rotate defending team. Point for play thru zone for attacking teams, two points for playing thru middle zone to far zone (long pass) Point for each pass for defending team. Progression - Players can now move between zones but can only have one player of each color in zone.

Key Points: Look for support angle and quickly move off ball. 1 and 2 touch passing to take advantage of number overload and quickly move ball between zones. Players have to be aware of movement around them and be quick to react. Think about opening space (moving off ball) to create space for teammate to run into/attack.
