Topic - Breaking Lines

Block 2 - 2 minutes, 30 seconds rest

Variation of the practice is if the reds win the ball from the balls in the middle. The Reds can pass the ball out to the 6 reds on the outside and becomes 9 reds v 7 blues.

The reds on the outside remain on the outside, but can move up and down the line to create different passing angles.

The aim for the reds is to use the 3 centre midfielders to switch play (as shown above). The players can be shown different passing patterns

- deepest cm recieves the ball and rotate in the middle.

- Bounce pass back and break the line between the blues

- recieve and turn on the ball and look to switch

Conditions:

Limit the 3 x reds in the middle onto a number of touches

How quickly can the reds switch play (how many passes)

Managing the oppositon:

Blues have a number of seconds to win the ball

Everytime the ball is switched a point is gained for the reds, limit the number of points scored to make it competitive.

After each block, can change the 3 reds in the middle

If the blues win the ball back, then the red return to the middle of the centre and the blues to the centre circle and the practice continues from the start.
