2 v 2 v 2 Split Passing


Three pairs of players play 4 v 2 keep away. When a player loses possession, he and his teammate go into the middle to defend. Any time a player is nutmegged, his team gets an extra turn on defense. During play, the players on the outside must stay very close to the lines of the grid. If a defending team is stuck in the middle for more than 30 seconds, they do ten push ups and switch out.

Coaching Points:

1.  When a defender closes the distance, fake a pass to slow down his run.

2.  If a defender chases the ball, look for the thru pass that splits the defenders.

3.  Use one touch when you can, two touches when you should.


1.  Limit one of the players on each team to one touch.

If the defenders get split twice, they do push ups (10x); outside passes *3 next team rotates in
