5V5+5 denying passes centrally

Method: Three grids with two grids being always active and one waiting so receive.

While defending will represent a back three with two midfielders.

While attacking will be two forwards and three midfields.

If defending team win the ball they secure the ball with other team and swap with team who lost possession.

Coaching Points: Passive pressure on CB allowing ball to go out wide to FB this is where we initiate the press off of our triggers (bad pass, poor touch, negative body shape)

Midfield three must stay compact and not allow ball through the middle. Touch tight on the forwards back, not allowing time on the ball if they do receive centrally. Scanning over should to be constantly aware of players are over shoulder and cutting off those options
