Reds on the outside pass the ball inside to a Blue who have a dribble and go into the box where they do a skill/trick/change of direction then find another Red on the outside with a pass they peel off to recieve a pass back then again dribble off through the box another skill/trick/change of direction and then find another red on the oustide,

Rotate the players on the inside and outside every couple of minutes.

This drill works on:

passing and recieving skills

encourages players to be aware of whats going off around them

dribbling skills and body movement

communication skills between those inside and those outside

lots of touches of the ball

can the players in the inside do a no touch turn? 1 touch turn? etc

can they peel off to the side to see all of the pitch?

looking over their shoulder before they get the pass back to see what space they have behind them to enable a quick turn.

What kind of skills can the do in the box?

Can they use a different change of direction everytime they go into the box?

Players on the outside should be ready to recieve on their toes looking asking for the ball

Can then add a defender in the box so the players inside have defensive pressure when entering therefore they will need better control of the skill/change of direction
