8 v. 8


The Game

  1. Two teams of 8 play ~keep-away~ in the middle zone as marked.
  2. If the defending team wins the ball, they immediately try to posess it.

Coaching Points

Attack:

  1. Moving with and without the ball.
  2. Angles of support.
  3. Team 'Balance.
  4. Vision.

Defense:

  1. Immediate pressure when the ball is turned over.
  2. Cover.
  3. Making play predictable.
  4. Compacting space.

Try These Variations

  1. Limit attacking players to '2 touch'
  2. Create a sequence where if an attacker takes more than 2 touches, the next touch must be a 'i touch'
  3. After every fourth touch the area of play must be shifted elsewhere.
