Technical Transition 

10-15 mins break down 3 lots of 4 min blocks so that interventions can be held and demonstarions can be added if needed.

2 grids 30-30

10-12 players based on numbers you have

Rules 

2 rondos going on side by side, try and leave at least a 1-2 meters in-between pitches so that player C and D are not getting in each others way

players A,B,C & D pass to each other keeping ball away from player E, same happens in both boxes.

coaching player touch, player awareness and player E ability to close down and use pressure.

Adaptations (Progressions & Regressions):

To progress this coach will blow whistle and allow both players E from each grid to work together to get the ball, players C & D will also now become part of the middle, so now it becomes inside players vs outside players.

Challenges, Conditions or Targets:

challenges when the whistle is blown by the coach, you now have 4 players in the middle and the outside have to wok the ball around to keep possession.

target for the inside to work as a team press or individually 

outside players to retain possession under pressure.
