8 v 4 (20 mins)

Box 40y x 20y.

The idea of this game is for the blue to get the ball off the red and greens and score a goal.

The red and greens can pass between each other but encourage quick tempo and limit touches, try to emphasise the importance of movement and passing within triangles or switching play with a long ball. The Blue defending team move as a unit to ensure angles are limited for passes.

If the ball goes out the coach feeds in the ball to the opposing team who were not in possesion.

Each team rotates after 2 mins so you always have a 8 v 4 situation.

Each team has 3 turns as a defensive unit.

Game time 20 minutes.
