Man Up/Down Situation
Offense, Midfield, Defense
To work on transitioning the ball down the field in an unsettled situation.
Description of Drill-Execution
Set up the field with lines of players at the corners of each restraining line. Start with a 3v2 at one end of the field. After a shot or defense comes up with the ball, make an outlet pass to one of the lines at the restraining line and 1 defender joins going the other direction. 2 of the 3 attackers stay and play defense at the end where they were just attacking. This is a disguised conditioning drill.
