Set-up: Two teams of six (numbers can vary). Four players in the middle from each team with two boundary players. White boundary players are vertical, red horizontal.
The Game: 4 v4 in the middle (could be 3v3 depending on your numbers). When you play to a boundary player, that player must take a first touch to enter the field. A teammate has to fill the line the boundary player vacated. Boundary players are not stationary. They should be moving along the line to create good passing angles.
You are always 6 v4 whenever your team has the ball.
- Keeping possession.
- Can you transfer the ball quickly from one side to the other?
