Offense, Defense, Midfield
To work on allowing teams to change the point of attack with pressure.
Description of Drill-Execution
Start by creating a small field about 30 yards long. Divide players into 2 teams, one Gk in each cage. Teams are lined up on either side of the field. Begin with a 3v3 going for a 50:50 ball. Once a team gains possession they can score on either goal cage. The teams can change which goal they are using on the fly.
- Maintaining Possession
- Communication – where to force the attacker with the ball
- Clearing space offensively

- Denying cuts and passes defensively
