Field laid out in zones as shown – objective is to carry/pass into shaded end zone under control – defensive zone is 4v2 with attacking 6 allowed to enter – attacking 7/11 may enter half-space box for 2 seconds, max 2-3 touch – defender cannot enter prior to ball


Allow one of the backs to come forward in support


Backs – create support off ball, use GK to switch
9 – move opposing 4/5 with runs, use blind side
7/11 – look for triggers (combinations) to enter half-space, time runs, make 3rd player runs
6 – as ball enters half-space look for pockets of space
Defending team (Blue) can go to goal
