Players initially zone locked as shown
Players may not enter goal zones on either end – ball can enter final third by pass into striker or being carried in – if ball passed by one midfielder, other midfielder can join to support but must return to their zone on counter


Limit touch counts
Allow center backs to join in midfield


Attackers – look for quick combinations, anticipate 3rd player runs into final third – time dismark to receive in midfield, 2nd attackers open up to provide options to relieve pressure
Defenders – try to close off options, look for moments to intercept and counter quickly
