Set up: Create a 40 x 40 yard grid or as needed, and divide the area in half. Restrict players to 2 v 2 in each area, with each team having 4 target players (depth and width) on the outside as illustrated. Instructions: Players look to maintain possession of the ball, and score by utilizing one of the target players. To score again with another target player, the ball must first be played to the other side of the area. Target players do not enter the area, cannot defend the other target player, and can move freely along their line in support of the ball. Play to points, time, winner stays, and then rotate accordingly.
Creating space by running off of the ball; quality passing both long and short; support play with proper angles and distances; receiving and turning under pressure; quick and appropriate decision making.
