Players start in pairs on the 23 meter line.
The attackers have to try and score a goal against the defender.
The defender has no stick and to stop the players scoring they have to tag the player in possession of the ball. As soon as a player has been tagged both attackers must stop and join the queue again.
3 blue and 1 white player start from between the gates (2 cones). Set in the specific areas on the pitsh.
Blue 1 starts with the ball and passes the ball to blue player 2 coming out of the gate. The defender (white) can now try to stop the players scoring.
Player 2 passes the ball back to player 3 and the 3 blues continue to the goal and try to score.
One attacker and one defender stand at the top of the circle.
The 2nd defender stands wide outside the 23m area and passes the ball to a 2nd attacker level in the middle of the pitch.
Once they have receivied the ball this attacker can take the ball and try and score a goal using the other attacker the defender that started the exercise can run back and help prevent the 2 attackers from scoring.
create forward passes by transferring the ball
The 3 blue players are trying to pass the ball through one of the 3 goals in the middle of the area to one of the three players on the opposite side.
They can do this by running with the ball, dummy passing or transferring the ball between them to draw to two defenders out of position and create space for the pass.
The 2 defenders can only intercept the ball. When they do so they have to try and and pass the ball over the back line behind the 3 blue players who just lost the ball.
Set out the grid as shown with 2 goals either side of the defender.
1 player starts with the ball and has to run into contact with the defender (draw the defender) on doing so the player with the ball can decide to continue and try to run round the defender or turn away from the defender keeping possession of the ball and pass the ball to the supporting player who is only allowed to come into the grid and help if they have received the ball.
Now the 2 player can play a 2 v 1 and try to score a goal.
Players start from the left or the right with a ball. One defender in the Circle and one support attacker on the back line. Players with the ball start out side the circle and have to try and score. Depending on how what the defender does the attacker with the ball can choose to use the 2nd attacker or go on their own to score.
3 Players with a ball are trying to get one of the wide players across the goal line by passing the ball via the support player. The defending player ha to try and stop the player crossing the line.
4 players with 2 balls. One player in the middle is tightly marked. One of the players with the ball passes the ball at the marked player who then wall passes the ball back to this player for him/her to run with the ball to the other side. Then the 2nd player with the ball does the same once on the other side. Turn and repeat role reversal in the middle.
