Warm Up (15 mins)


1. 15X15 grid

2. 5 attackers inside the grid

3. The remaining players pair up as defenders behind one corner cone with the supply of balls.


1. The first pair of defenders passes a ball into the 5 attackers.

2. The defenders immediately step into the grid and become defenders creating a 5v2 inside the grid.

3. The 5 attackers attempt to maintain possession putting together as many passes as possible. The attackers continue passing until the defenders win the ball, or the ball is knocked out of play.

4. Once the play is dead, the next pair of defenders plays into the same 5 attackers, and play resumes.

5. Change out attackers once they have played every group of defenders twice.

Coaching Points:

1. Vision

2. Changes in the direction and speed of play

3. Appropriate use of 1st touch

4. Appropriate use of short or long passing

5. Good passes to feet

6. Good first touch towards space

7. Good decision making (make play easy)

8. Speed of play/decisions


1. Adjust grid (larger grid = easier for attackers but harder for defenders; smaller drid = harder for attackers but easier for defenders)

2. Adjust the number of attackers (4 attackers vs 2 defenders)
