The Red and Blue teams play a 5v5 possession game in the 35x25 grid. 6 neutral players in Pink pinnies are stationed around the outside and can be used as frequently as necessary. Coach is observing from the side with a supply of balls ready to keep the game moving.

Coaching Points

In it's basic form, this game is just about keeping the ball. Coaches may promote competition (and thus create urgency/workrate) by giving rewards. For example:

- If a team can make 10 consecutive passes they get a point

- If a team keep possession for 20 seconds they get a point

- If a team can get the ball to every neutral player they get a point

The keys to success here are:

- A high workrate

- Intelligent movement off the ball to create space and/or drag defenders away

- Utilize the neutral players effectively

- Check in/away

- Crisp, clean passes

- Minimal touches / high speed of play

- Communication

- Head on a swivel
