70 Yards x 30 Yards

5 v 4

2 GK's 

4 attackers

3 Defenders


Light team will receive a pass from the GK
Action starts 4v3 for the light team as shown.
They must advance the ball into the next that is 25-30 yards away from the opposition's goal
Once they are in the zone they attempt to score, offside applies
If the blue team wins the ball, they must pass the ball to one of their blue teammates waiting at the pole (two strikers). The players on the pole become active when the ball is played to them (offside applies). If the ball goes out of bounds when the light team is in possession then a coach will serve a ball to the blue players on the pole. The rest of the blue team join up to make it 5v4.
If a goal is scored or ball goes out of bounds the action in complete. If the light team wins the ball or the Gk makes a save another action will go 4v5 the other direction.
