• 1v1 in the middle, coach starts by choosing a player who is ‘in possession’.

  • The in possession player (blue in the example to the right) looks to retain the ball using the players on the outside.

  • If tackled by the red, or the pass is inaccurate and goes out, player in red looks to retain the ball with the players on the outside. 

    *area size flexible on intended outcomes and player ability

    • Directional (blue play South to North, red plays East to West – see arrows on the session diagram)
    • 2v1 or 2v2 in the middle
