EXPLANATION

Activity starts with GK, only one Blue player allowed in wide channel to start
Red must dribble through one of the cone goals to score, Blue to score on large goal

PROGRESSION

Remove channel restriction; remove mannequins + add Blue defenders; restart with coach playing ball into one of the Red players

COACHING POINTS

Backs – take open body positions, center backs mostly facing up field, outside backs side-on
GK – play firm pass to back foot, avoid playing into pressure
All – look for safe passes, avoid pressure, advance forward when/available and possible
Play with heads-up, recognize pressure and space, look for quick movements to attack wide channel goals
Blue defenders – must come out and play, do not sit in front of cone goals
