Key Coaching Points
  • For pre-season this practice can be extended to ensure central players are working hard in the initial phases. 2 v 2's can be demanding, especially when players are limited with options outside.
  • S - SPACE: Players must check shoulders consistently to recognise space in which to play.
  • T - TIME: Players to communicate time players have available and coach can set time limits for each practice, with elements of competition between pairs.
  • E - EQUIPMENT: 2 areas, allows numbers to be catered for and progressions can be creative as shown, if more players could add another square with less floaters.
  • P - PLAYERS: Possible use of a floater in central area to maintain flow of possession, possibly extending area in which players can play.
