6 players in red are placed inside the the 30 x 30 area with 3 soccer balls and 6 white players are also placed inside the area with a ball each.

Procedure:

The 6 Red players pass and move within the area playing passes to only players in red while the 6 white players dribble around and change direction every 3 or 4 touches at game speed. The focus should be on the 6 players passing and moving. After 2 minutes rotate the players.

Progression:

Make it a competition between the red and white teams. The red team have to make as many complete passes as possible while the white team can try to intercept the passes as they dribble. The whites must still keep control of their ball. If they do intercept a pass they just stop the ball and the red players retrieve the ball and continue. Play for 2 minutes and tally the points. Rotate the players and play again.
