2 v 2 Plus Two

Setup:

The teams play 2 v 2 with two teammates stationed on opposite sides of the field. Players on the outside are limited to two touches. To score, the teams must advance the ball from one side of the field to the other without losing possession. After a score, the teams change the direction of the attack, going east to west as opposed to going north to south, and vice versa. Also, the players on the outside switch with their teammates on the inside after each score.

 

Coaching Points:

1.    Check away from the ball to create space to run back into.

2.    Play the ball backwards as opposed to forcing the ball forwards and turning right into the defender.

3.    Look for fast transitions whenever you win or lose possession.

 

Progressions:

1.    Play 3 v 3 with one player on the outside. The outside player must run from one end line to the other and receive in order to score.
