2v1 (20 mins)

25x20 Grid 2 teams each attacking one goal with GK

One team starts playing 2v1 to goal against the other. After the ball goes out of play or a goal is scored, the player on the attacking team who touched it last (shot,pass,turnover) becomes the defender and the former defending team attacks with 2.

Play to 10

Encourage the attackers to attack at speed and use their advantage

Teammate should quickly find supporting angle away from defender

Should last no more than 5-6 seconds and should have high tempo

1) The defenders first job is to protect the goal (deny the shot and cut off the route forward)

2) Contain the attack (force one way, cut off forward pass)

3) Look to win the ball
