Transfer Rondo

Setup:  6+N v 2.   two 15 or 20 yd boxes with a 5 yd grid.

Game:   Blues and yellow are locked in their half to start.   3v1 (or 4v1) to start.  Goal is to complete 2 passes in one half, pass to target player in center zone, and transfer ball to other side (preferably combining with 2 runners running on outside).   1 defender goes into a half to defend and can win ball and score on a pug or goal.   The other defender must play behind target player in middle and can only steal ball once the target player gets 1st touch.   2 runners should support with runs every time a target player receives.

Coaching:  At first, any transfer will work.  Get them to work on combining with 1 of the runners in central zone to transfer.
