Stage 1: 1 ball

- BLUE CB double pass with an outside back then into midfield

- Midfielders combine (2 touches) then play outside to overlapping outside back

- Outside back plays into the RED CB

Coaching points

- Defensive mids half turned so they can play forward with 2 touches

- Attacking mid should start high (stretch opponents) then check back to ball

- Outside back making run forward should start when attacking mid receives the ball (3rd man run)


- Center back plays to the other full back and plays runs through the other side

Stage 2: 2 balls

- Same thing, but both RED and BLUE start at the same time and play through each other

- Switch sides

Progression 1

- CB now dictates where and when to start play i.e. can swing across the back then play into either defensive mid

Progression 2

- When outside back receives the ball has to now play ball into attacking

- Attacking mid then plays through to other team's CB

Stage 3: light pressure

- BLUE team goes through to the other side in a similar pattern against light pressure from RED

- When ball gets to the other side RED team goes back other way against light pressure from BLUE

Coaching points

- Great freedom with decisions to make it more game like

Stage 4: full pressure

- Must link 2 passes in the grid with midfielders before playing out to outside back

- Outside back has to play back to attacking mid

- Attacking mid advances into end zone w/ 2 other players to create a 3v2
