Pass to go forward

  1. Red play in teams of 3 starting different side each time
  2. Red begins with the ball at the half-way line on an inside channel.
  3. Defenders Green begin in centre of 23.
  4. Red outlets ball and attacks D

Green must run back into D and then defend 3 on 3

  1. A point is scored by the attackers for scoring
    If defenders gain possession they can dribble to either green circle to score the points
    If attackers regain possession game continues
    Once defenders have defended 3 times swap to be attackers

10 balls then out – KEEP SCORE

  1. The quality of the pass is critical. Pass should lead the receiver with good ball speed, so they can accelerate onto (or with) the ball and maintain the positional advantage over the defender.
  2. Receiver’s feet should be facing forward (pointing towards the goal on both sides. This will allow them to accelerate quickly with the ball to cut off the defender.
  3. Recovering defenders works to get into tackling position if possible, otherwise try to pressure the attacker into taking a shot from a wider angle.
  4. Remember defensive principles
  1. Over the side = reset
  2. Minor infractions ignore
  1. Add an attacking or defending overload
  2. Ball must be played by all attackers before they can shoot
