The LM starts with the ball. His/her compulsory pass is to the LW. As soon as the ball is played, the 3 players with the ball have to try and score a goal. The defenders start in the circle but can only defend outside the circle.(Tip is that one of the 3 players with the ball always takes a position between the two defenders).
The LD takes a hit in from the side line. Their compulsory pass is to the the SW. As soon as the ball is played the 3 players with the ball have to get the ball out of the 23m area. (Tip is that one ot the 3 players with the ball always takes a position between the two defenders).
Player 1 passes the ball to player 2, who plays a 2v1 with player 3 through the channel. Once through, the attack becomes a 4v2 to try and score a goal. The defender in the channel stays and waits for the next attack.
The Left wing(LW) receives ball from Left midfield (LM) and takes the ball into the zone where the right defender(RD) can try and win the ball. Just before the LW loses the ball he/she turns away from the RD and passes the ball to LM. It is important that LM stays outside the zone and straight behind the LW. When the LM receives the ball he/she has to try and get the ball to Right midfield(RM) either direct or via the Center midfield (CM) depending what The defending midfielder (DM) is doing. The DM is restricted to the coned area and therefore can only intercept when LM runs with the ball into that area.
Pass and follow sequence LM-LW-CM-RM-LM (RD + RMD should be switched every so often).
Coach feeds the ball to MM who plays the ball to RD or LD. These in turn play the ball in to the forwards on their side and play 3v2, (defenders have to play man to man marking for the first pass).
Progression - introduce sweeper into the defence and let the MM join in the game after his pass, making it 4v3.
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.
