Description In a square of 5 yards we play 4 v 2. The four players outside the square have a maximum of 2 touches and must maintain possession playing only from outside of the square. The two defenders inside the square have to intercept the ball. The player who looses possession ball will change roles to become a defender. Objective To develop passing, possession and creating space (unmarking) in a warm-up practice. Coaching Points 1. Create space to find the right position and angle to receive the ball.
2. Improve the speed of play by limiting to 1 touch when possible.
3. It is very important to coach the correct body shape for receiving passes.
4. The 2 defending players must communicate and work together, one closing down the man in possession and the other covering the angle for the pass.
