Ball starts with red team when goes out.

1pt per goal (mini or large goal)

Players can score in mini goals from anywhere.

Players can only score in large goal once beyond offside line.

Players cannot cross the offside line until ball breaks line. (forces defensive to stay high).

3. How can you attack weakside more effectively? (Disguise / attract pressure in half space zone)

NOTES: Ensure defending team is defending properly.    

1. Defending team must shift quickly as ball moves (reduce spaces between players / prevent passing lanes).

2. Defending team must be compact (reduce space between lines).

Guided Questions:   

1. How do we force opposition to shift in order to create free half spaces? (#7/#11 - look to receive with open hips / looks to score in mini goal down line early - force opposition back line to shift).

2. How can we attract press (Pass or dribble to attract)
