6v3 - Three Zone Transition

Organization:

30x18 - Three areas of 10x18

Three teams of 6 players

Coach serves the balls to keep the exercise move quickly

Instructions:

Teams must complete three passes in their possession zone before attempting to play through, around or over the middle defensive zone. The three-pass rule is to allow time for the team transitioning into defends to get pressure on the ball.

The team in the opposite possession area must provide support for all three options - wide players have the ability to drop into parking zones positioned either side of the central zone

Teams score for every successful action forward

If the ball is lost the team must quickly transition to the middle to defend

Coaching Points:

Quick decision-making

Technical application - driven, lofted or firm passes to wide player

Wide Player - ability to catch the ball and pass forward

Progressions:

Defenders in the middle zone can defend the players in the parking areas

Allow teams to decide how many players they send into press and how many they keep back to screen passes
