Key Factors

  • Man marking and hold-up play, each pair take it in turns to start with the ball, the player with the ball is tasked with shielding the ball from the opponent, while trying to pass to an adjacent team-mate.
  • the defender is tasked with trying to win the ball from their opponent and then to perform the same task of shielding the ball and passing it to a teammate. 
  • The winner of the exercise is which team can complete a full circuit first

Whole-Part-Whole, in the second game, both teams are challenged to hold up the ball in the opponents box for 3 seconds before passing it to a teammate to shoot, when successfully done they earn 2 points for the goal rather than one.
