Positioning Game:

Organisation (12-14 players):

Half pitch

Two teams in a back four formation (2/3/4/5) with two jokers (6/8)

One or two bouncers at each end depending on numbers

Explanation:

Play starts from one end

Back four combine with middle two to create a 6v4

Attacking team to try and get ball to opposite end-player (no, minimal high balls)

Defending team try to prevent ball reaching end-player and win ball

If defending team win ball they counter-attack at pace and opposition recover to defend

If attacking team get ball to end-player, end-player must pass ball back to defending team asap to start quick counter-attack

Bouncers are always on team with possession

End-players (either one or two) stay as central as possible

Team Task:

As soon as the other team starts their attack get into good defensive positions

Player Tasks:

2/5 play wide and high in attack then recover as quickly as possible to get inside attacking wide player

2/5 look to recover to defensive line with 3/4 if counter is on other side of pitch

Bouncer/GK play ball out as quickly as possible

6/8 look to switch play out wide as much as possible

Player Cues:

6/8 can you cover as much central ground as possible and look to receive ball to play other side of pitch

2/5 can you anticipate counter-attack and recover to either defend against wide ball carrier or organise defense with 3/4
