Offense, Defense, Midfield
To work on offensive fast breaks and defensive slowing down the ball.
Description of Drill-Execution
Need offensive and defensive players starting from half field. Create game-like situations positioning offensive players in typical transition areas. Place defensive players in recovery or anticipatory positions in order to create game-like situations. Begin with an attacker in possession of the ball at midfield. 2 attackers are below the restraining line with defenders guarding them. Defenders must slide to cover a fast break and use a lot of communication. Add more midfielders and attackers to build the drill to a 7v6 man up/man down situation.
