4v1 Boxes

Body positioning is key when receiving the ball and deceiving the defender, helping link play with teammates

Play through the zones

In this drill coaches can get their players making decisions on when to pass and where to pass under pressure from defending players. There are different roles that all reflect the game in action. This helps the 7v7 to 9v9 transition.

7v7+1 play through the thirds

This is a small-sided game focused on moving the ball through the thirds with the ideal move being up, back and through. That and the +1 in the central area make this a great game for educating your player in 9v9 game play and tactics.
