Progressive Possession | Opposed (18-P1)

Organisation / Set Up
This is Practice 1 from Theme 18: Progressive possession, and is played in a 30 by 30 Yard square area, with two 5 yard target zones as shown. With a 6 v 6 plus 2 floaters, the possession team must look to keep the ball and find the floaters with passes into the specified zones. Players must then either find the opposite zone or make 5 passes to play back into the same area.

Key Points
The opportunity exists for the possession team to score if the floater receives in any of the 2 zones. Players can then measure risk v reward, recognising when to attack goal after making 3 passes.
