Set Up:

The attacking team plays 5 v 6, looking to score in the big goal. The defense plays in a 4-2, and the attackers play in a 2-3. When the defenders win the ball, they try to finish in one of the two small goals. Whenever the defense shoots the ball, the Feeder immediately plays a second ball into the attacking team (Player 1 in the diagram) to start a fast transition to goal. After ten minutes, the teams switch roles.

Coaching Points:

1   Speed of Play – Take advantage of superior numbers by attacking at high speed.

2.  Transition – Anticipate turnovers so that you can get in behind the defense.

3   Attacking – Make positive first touches to goal and look for early crosses.
