Three teams the outside team works with the inside attacking team. Great to teach both defending and attacking play. Teaches the mentality of transitional change. Developing Quick Play in and around the box. As soon as the team lose possession they must try to defend on the offside line and beyond, thus immediately pushing opponents away from the goal. Using the set up through the “numbers” to suit how we set our teams up.
Here are 9 ways to distribute from the keeper and play out from the back. We owe it to the players to teach them this as Young as is possible.
I work on this initially practicing all ways to get out. Have opponents only intercepting passes to begin. Then let it go free. When opponents win it back we work on the defending team condensing and defending correctly.
If three or four ways to develop play are done very frequently then it becomes a subconscious decision to move into position so no decision making required as such.
