Offense, Defense, Midfield
This drill forces players to play 6 v 6 and to ride after a save is made.
Description of Drill-Execution
Start with defense and offensive midfielders on one side of the midfield. Have attack and defensive midfielders on the other side. The coach begins the drill by rolling a ball out toward one end of the field. All six players recognize the situation and take advantage of offensive and defensive situations as they unfold. Upon a shot, score, or loss of bounds or change of possession, the offensive team will ride the clear attempt. Have another group of 6 doing the same thing at the opposite end of the field.
