|Dribbling to prevent the opponent, Feints and tricks, Losing your marker, Intercepting, Tackling, 1 versus 1, Triangle|
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.
- 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.
- 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
- Increase or reduce the field sizes according to players age and technical level
- Play only with 2 neutral players reducing pass options
- 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
