2v1 grid progression


Organize a series of grids (15yds square or so) in sequence. Place 1 defender in each grid – must stay in grid. Pairs of players try to advance through each grid without losing the ball. Players must decide to take defender on, or pass

Coaching Points

If space is open ahead, player should push into space. Player on ball should use feints. Player off ball should constantly be open, even if dropping backwards to receive ball. Try to read and react quickly – don’t wait for defender to close space.


Limit defender movements, allow them more freedom. Limit touches in a box for attackers.
