< All Topics

EXPLANATION

Teams are organized 8v5 as shown with outside players on Red team (not neutral)
On ball played into final third, one Red may join striker forming a 2v2
Red – 1 pt/goal
White 2 (or more) pts/goal

PROGRESSION

Limit Red touch count
Require Red to use both channels before goal

COACHING POINTS

Red – should be able to maintain possession, look to draw White and final openings to break lines
White – try to find quick counter opportunities, look to recycle ball under pressure (note 2v1 in defending third)
