  • After each series swap posititions

 

Rules
  • Unlimited ball touches during ball possession
Coaching Points
  • Create possessing triangles to avoid the opponent player enclosing him inside the triangle
  • Focus on reaction to negative transition, once lost the ball possession, the player who is closer to the ball presses the opponent while teammates get closer
  • Focus on global distances between players
  • Focus on the body positioning during ball reception, it must be always oriented toward the largest part of the field
  • Encourage the give and go: after passing the ball to a teammate the player keeps running to the free space and then receives again the ball
  • Minimum ideal unity: The player that has the ball must always have available at least 2 teammates that can guarantee him a pass at any time
  • The player that is closer to the ball carrier must choose if moving approaching or in depth, activating consequently the relative movement of teammates
  • Encourage players to perform the countermove to lose the marker before receiving
  • To accomplish a continuous mobility and keep the propper staggering, two close players who are on the same line either vertical or horizontal have to move, creating diagonal lines
  • Adapt the dimensions of the field according to players age and technical level
