3 v 1 - players with one ball between them. The players in possession have to pass the ball to each other while one player (white 1) attempts to catch the player in possession of the ball. On doing so, the player caught becomes the catcher.
With the lesser player play catch the player in possession with the better players the player in the middle has to try and win the ball (maybe 3 times before he/she can come out, last player to lose the ball goes into the middle)
Players are trying to keep possession of the ball for as long as possible. Players inside the area can use the two players on the outside of the grid to help them keep the ball.
Play keep ball. Teams need to keep possession for as long as possible or up to a set number of passes (first to 10 passes etc.)
Try and take the predictability out of the game by disguising where the ball is going and using sudden changes of pace and direction.
In the grid play a 5 vs 5 or 4 vs 4 possession hockey game.
There a two jokers stood at either end of the area. These two players may receive the ball from either team and are stood in the scoring zone.
The aim is to play possession hockey and use the two Jokers. Everytime the team in possession passes the ball to a joker and receives a pass back they score a point.
The first team to score 5 consecutive points is the winner.
Scoring on the break
Teams of 3 - 4 players. Each team numbers themselves 1-2-3-4 and has one ball. The ball should be passed around the team in numerical order whilst moving around the set area. When the player has passed the ball, he/she can try and intercept the ball from one of the other teams (no tackling). First team to pass the ball 12 times is the winner.
Set out grids 5 by 5 m. For the practice 1 player on each corner with 1 ball between 4. Player passes ball clock wise and after pass moves to touch the cone in the middle of the square and back out again.
Create 2 end zones either side of a line. 2 players are in each end zone and 2 defenders on the line. The players in the end zones can pass the ball to each other laterally but the aim is to try and pass the ball from one end zone to the other, without the ball being intercepted by the defenders who can only defend on the line. See how many passes the teams can score against the defenders. When the defenders have intercepted the ball 3 times the players who played the last pass change over and become the defenders.
5 vs 3 down the right hand side Effectively trying to get the ball out of the back through the right half when the transfer has been blocked Goal is to get the ball over the half way line
The team with the ball must try and keep possession of the ball. Only 2 players from each team are allowed to be inside the area. 1 player can move anywhere on the outside of the area. To involve this player, the players inside the area have to pass the ball to the outside player. On doing so, the outside player can come into the area and the player that passed the ball becomes the new outside player.
Split your players up into 3 equal teams of 3 or 2. 2 teams combine (Blue and Yellow in this case) to keep possession while the red work hard to make the interception. When the defending team win the ball/make the interception the team that lost the ball must now defend and the team that was defending (red) now combine with the other team to keep possession in a 6v3 game.
