Only defender is allowed to leave the square and the other one has to stay in their grid and can only be leave if the other defender has returned inside their grid.
The attackers have to keep possession and try to create an overlap to get a player behind the defender.
Once the players have achieved this the other winger can come into the circle and receive the ball to try and score.
The key to this drill working is to get the ball to the wing quickly and for this winger to drive in field to try and draw the defender away from the side line and the grid.
This should allow the infield player to run around the outside and receive the ball.
The player with the ball starts to run down the pitch towards the goal. The supporting player stays slightly behind but moves up the pitch on the other side of the line of cones.
When the player with the ball starts to run across the line of cones to the other side the supporting player should at this stage cross over and switch to the other side.
The player with the ball can then pass the ball and the practice continues with the new player in possession.
Once players run past the final cone the player in possession has a shot on goal.
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.
Player 1 dribbles the ball across the square, forcing player 2 to also switch in order to receive the square pass from player 1.
Player 2 then starts again, running with the ball from right to left before then passing the ball back across to player 1.
Movement off the ball
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.
