ORGANISATION:
Using a 2x25ryd area. Divide the large square into 4 smaller coloured squares. Approx. 12-13yrds each in width. This game can be played either 5vs3 or the easier version of 6vs2 for lesser skilled soccer players.
INSTRUCTIONS:

The attacking players are attempting to invade (cross into) an adjacent square and retain possession by passing to another one of their team-mates. Play starts with a free pass to the attacking team which cannot be intercepted by the defenders. The defenders look to win possession and play the ball out of the playing area. Once the defending team have played the ball out 6 times they switch with the attackers. The waiting defenders rotate in for the other defenders after the defending team has won the ball twice.

SCORING:
The attacking team scores a point by running or dribbling the ball from one coloured sector to another coloured sector (e.g. yellow to red sector) and then making a successful pass to a team-mate. Team vs. Team - After the defender have played the ball out 6 times count how many points the attacking team has earned. Switch the teams around and compare to establish the winning team.
KEY COACHING POINTS:
  1. Players need to play with their heads (eyes) up and have good awareness to see opportunities to attack space.
  2. Good positive receiving first touches into space to attack another sector.
  3. Use various turns and shielding to protect the ball and maintain possession.
  4. Supporting players need to take up good positions to allow for opportunities to run the ball into other sectors.
PROGRESSIONS:
  1. Run the ball through 2 areas and complete a successful pass to earn a point.
  2. Run the ball from one sector to another and then return to the original sector and complete a successful pass to earn a point.
  3. Run the ball into another sector and then have to complete a pass to someone in the same sector. (This encourages good primary support around the ball).
VARIATIONS:
  1. 6vs2 for younger players of less skill.

NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS:
Encourage players to run when a good opportunity arises and be creative. Watch for good dribbling technique and shielding. Ensure that supportive attackers maintain width and are spread out to open up opportunities to dribble into another sector.
