The Game: Red attacks the white defender. He tries to score in either of the gates (pugg goals are the best). Once Red is successful, scoring or taking a shot, the first white player in line immediately tries to attack the Red teams’ two goals. The initial red attacker quickly recovers “transitions from offense to defense” (Pictured below). When a player wins the ball during the initial 1v1 he/she tries to attack the opposing teams’ goals.
When the opponent has scored or taken a shot you (the defender) join the end of your line. Players that are “off” should always have a ball at their feet ready to begin the “fast break attack”.
- Taking a player on
- Running with the ball
- 1v1 defending
- Recovery runs
Note: Coach can create an attacking zone (pictured) where the attacking player can not shoot for outside this area. Attacking zone should extend approximately 7 yards from the end-line.
