Animation 1


Purple Players are to play with the Yellow players when the Yellows players are in possession.

The central Purple player is to act as a pivot

Yellow Team has to complete 10 passes to score a point

If successful 2 Red players attempt to score in one of the big goals and one of the purple has to transition to defend.

If the Red team score the coach plays a ball to the 2 Red players in the central box and they have to try and score in the opposite goal.

If the Red team fail to score the coach plays a new ball into the Yellow and the drill starts again.

Coaching Points:

The Yellow and Purple team are to move the ball quickly with good quality passing

The Red Team is to press aggressively and try to win the ball.

Communication is vital from the red team. ie who is pressing? who is covering? and who is protecting the center?
