Organization:

Attacking and middle thirds of the field. Full width. One main goal; two blue boxes with target players. Different colored cones (blue and red). Blue and red pinnies. Collection of balls just outside the servers' boxes (blue).

7 (red) vs. 8 (blue) - including GK. Both teams playing a 1-4-3-3.

Play begins with either one of the Red serving players (S) taking a touch and playing a ball into a teammate in the attacking zone. Either server has the option to join the intial attack. Restarts begin with the same two red players. Extras will be on hand. Blue also have a blue target player (T) in each box. Servers and target players are unopposed. Upon winning the ball, can blue play into a target player?

Key Factors:

1. Wide flank players need to create width. Look for movement and supporting angles.

2. Exploit space created by wingers who check to the ball when midfielders are in possession.

3. Look for space in front and in behind defenders along the flank.

4. Encourage midfielders to dribble and attack space in front of them. Get them to commit defenders.

5. Look for the striker to check towards the ball for a wall pass or third runner situation to a flank player.

6. Encourage switches of play.

Progressions:

1. Both serving red players become active in the play.

2. Allow for switches between serving players along the narrow alley created by the red cones.
