Set Up
40yard area with four 5yards in each corner. Number of players between 8 and 16. Each team has a single player in 2 corners and remaining players keeping the ball in the main area.

30 4 Corner Possession B
 
Progression 1 | One In - One Out
As ball played into square, 1st touch must take player out and another player replaces.
 

30 4 Corner Possession C
 
Progression 2 | 1-2 Combinations
First Touch must combine with supporting player, creating a 1-2, passer replaces.
 

30 4 Corner Possession D
 
Progression 3 | Five Pass Transfer
Can players transfer ball from 1 corner to the other within 5 passes?
 
 
Extra Touchtight Progressions
Once ball is played into square for rotation, opposite players must also switch off the ball, maintaining width and developing game understanding to lose markers.
 
S - Focus on the team creating width/depth in possession, with support provided near/far from the player in possession
 
T - Speed of pass and supporting movement is key. Developed further by adding defensive challenges i.e. Pressing/Compactness
 
E - Shaded areas could be made larger for less able teams to ensure the practice is able to be progressed
 
P - Could allow 1 player from shaded area to link up inside, further developing timing of runs and speed of pass into the box.
Article Description 402 yard area with four 52 yards in each corner. Number of players between 8 and 16. Each team has a single player in 2 corners and remaining players keeping the ball in the main area.
