I coach 20-30 adults and need creative ideas for engaging large groups!

Hi, I coach about 20-30 adults on half a full size astro turf pitch (which we only have for an hour so time is very limited). They are a decent ability and I'm just wondering if anyone has any creative ideas for either big group drills that keeps them all engaged or smaller drills that are easy to set up and they can rotate around. Thanks

simplesthave the same drill set up 3 or 4 times in the space provided. so if yoou have 20 players have have 5 grids with 4 per grid. it also depends on the intensity ofthe work out you wish to achieve.

Ryan's idea is usually the first I go to in these situations.

Another one is to have an outer rectangle (half the pitch or 60x40) with a smaller rectangle 5m inside with a 15x15 square exactly in the middle of the smaller rectangle.

20 players are put into 2 teams. 2v2 in the smallest  square, 4v4 spread around the smaller rectangle and 4v4 spread around the outer rectangle.

Simple aim: Score a goal everytime a ball is successfully passed from the inside to the outside via the middle rectangle and then back again to the smaller square via the mid rectangle

Just to add that the above game, the goal is scored ONLY if opponents havent touched the ball throughout the whole sequence. If ball lost or goes out of play then ball served into the square to restart.
