  1. 4v4, 5v4, 6v6, 8 v 8 in a grid
  2. Numbers and grids can vary depending on pitch size
  3. Players must stay in their zones
  4. Players must pass up the field in order to score
    1. 2 defenders and 1 attacker to encourage running off the ball

    1. In one of the 4 goals
    1. Move off the ball
    2. Speed of pass before “setup”
    3. One touch passing

    5. Draw the defenders then pass
    6. Easy pass
    7. Pivots
