-Normal game rules apply.

Point Scoring System

-If a player is in the same area for 3 seconds the other team get a goal.

-If you score from a sequence of play where a wide player rotates with a central player, 2 goals.

-Literally decide on whatever you want to do as long as you justify it.

Drill 3.

-Set up the area as above .


-11v11 game with the box in the middle.

-It is important that you explain to players that they are playing in a non pressured environment and they are free to do what ever movements they want.

Conditions I used:

It doesn’t  matter who does goes where but I need 3 boxes at least filled when in possession.

-When you release the ball from the box you must move out of that box otherwise the opposition get a goal.

-I also gave extra goals for double or triple rotations.
