Set Up:

  • Make several 10x10yd grids.
  • Two players go 1 v 1 in the center while next pair is on outside of grid.
  • Play until the coach says ‘stop!’
  • The player with the ball at that point wins (change the duration of the game every time).
  • Players in the center try and hold possession by shielding 
  • If ball goes out of bounds, a new ball is played in by the pair outside.
  • After the game is over, the next pair come on. 

Coaching Points:

  • Little touches in tight spaces.
  • Make sure your body is between the ball and the defender.
  • Try to get ‘side-on’ to the defender to make yourself bigger.
  • Be light on your toes and creative.
