Counter Pressing 6v3

Organization: The red team combines from the outsides of the field with each other with the aim to target pass the central player. Blue defends the in-between space and is allowed to interfere all passes or pressure on the red central player after a successful pass. If Blue gains possession, they counter on four mini-goals. Red is allowed to use a maximum of five passes before passing to the central player.

Coaching Points: If Red loses the ball, ball-distant positions need to cover the mini-goals. Ball-near players, especially the central player, apply direct pressure on the ball carrier.

Variation: In order to provoke and intensify ball losses, an additional time-rule can be introduced. “Red only has eight seconds to target pass the central player!”. Minimize the central zone.
