3 v 3 in playing area, with two targets at each end and two neutral players on the sides, numbers permitting. Players aim to receive from one set of target players and play forward to target players at opposite end. Target players must play square before feeding back in to team in possession.


- As a team, can you occupy three boxes when in possession?

Key factors:

- Scanning

- Recieving, back foot or protect?

- Passing, safe side or into space?

- Creativity (Round corner, one-twos, dummies etc)

- Movement/rotation

- Recognising triggers, ball moving and player moving
