Organization

By using an adequate number of markers form a square to 25x25 meters. Inside of it place four pairs of players and three neutral players (A, B and C). Each pair fight for one ball. 

Description
  • On coach’s signal the four couples face up in a continuous 1 vs. 1 duel.
  • "neutral" players help teammates with the ball to clear the passing lines.

 

Rules
  • To gain one point the player with the ball must perform a passing triangle with one of the three "neutral players" (A, B, C)
  • "Neutral players" have a maximum of 2 ball touches (stop and pass) to perform the triangle
  • Player who suffers the triangle takes the place of "neutral", in this way all the players in turn act as neutral player
  • If the player with the ball overcomes the opponent with a faint or a "tunnel", they scores two points, while the defender loses one
  • At the end of the two series wins the one who scores the highest number of points
Variations
  1. Increase or reduce the field sizes according to players age and technical level
  2. Play only with 2 neutral players reducing pass options
Coaching Points
  • The coach should encourage the players with the ball to always look the free neutral player
  • The three jolly must constantly try to lose the marker, clearing the passing lines for their teammates
  • Explain the defensive techniques
  • This exercise improves fast passes, losing the marker and defensive contrast
