Organization

Create a 16x16 meters area using the markers. Divide the square into 4 zones using the cones identifying them with letters (A, B, C and D). Split players into 2 teams using vests. Two players for each team move inside the square. Place 2 players for each team to the opposite sides of the square (as shown in the picture).

Description
  • The exercise starts with the ball to one of the outer players (e.g. Blue players)
  • Players inside the square move in order to receive the ball on the opposite side of their teammate. In zone A-D or B-C
  • Once received the ball, the inside player passes to the opposite teammate 
  • After the inner transmission, the player passes to the outer teammate who is on the opposite side of the starting point of the ball
  • Players inside keep on moving to occupy the opposite zones of the ball possessing ready to receive the ball and play
  • Limit the number of ball touches allowed to 3
  • Outer players swap positions with inner ones at the end of each series

Example

  1. Yellow player passes the ball to the teammate who has come to receive from zone B, while the inner player moves towards C to be able to receive the successive pass
  2. Player from zone B, once received the ball, passes to the yellow teammate iside C 
  3. The yellow player inside C passes on first intention to the yellow teammate outside the square
  4. The yellow player passes to the white player outside the square

 

 

  1. The white player after controlling the ball passes to teammate inside A zone, while the other white teammate runs to zone D to receive the subsequent pass
  2. The white player inside C after receiving passes to the white teammate inside zone D
  3. The white player passes to the white teammate outside the square
  4. The white player passes to the yellow teammate outside the square

After controlling the ball, the yellow player starts again the exercise maintaining continuity

 

Variations
  1. The opponent players can defend actively trying to anticipate, and if they regain the ball pass it to the closest outer player to restart ball possession
  2. Players play 2 vs 2 inside the square getting one point for every cross field pass (when each of the 4 players touched the ball
