Set Up

At it's most basic, this is a 13v6 possession game. The challenge is to use the small space effectively. Switch one team with the team on the outside every 5 minutes. Have a supply of balls ready to keep play going at a high speed.

The main coaching focus is on 2 things:

- Speed of play: 1 or 2 touch max, getting your head up and playing the ball quickly and effectively

- Positional Awareness: A high workrate to get into a supporting area

Simple things such as knowing which foot to receive with and which foot your teammates like to use are important for success also.

You can vary the rules as you please but a few basic ones are:

Outside players cannot play to eachother

Neutral player in the middle must be the X'th pass

2 touch limit

'The Buddy System', you can only tackle/mark your assigned opposite number
