High Press In Attacking Third | Opposed (25-P1)

 

 
 
Set Up
This is a quick fire starter possession practice in a 25 x 15 split into 2 halves, with size of practice adjusted to suit age and numbers. Here we work both the possession and pressing aspects of the game and engage players at the beginning of a session with high tempo challenge.
2 DFs must regain possession in the opposite end and transfer the ball to their teammates for the opposition to then send 2 players to do the same.
