To work on quick transition and ball movement down the field.
Description of Drill-Execution
Start by splitting up players into 2 teams and creating a small field with goals set up about 35-40 yards apart. X starts with the ball, if they score then they must check back to the coach on their end and receive a new ball and attack again. If D causes a turnover/GK makes a save, immediately attack the other direction. If D scores, check back to the coach on their end and receive a new ball to attack again/ if X causes a turnover/GK save they become attack. Play for a set time limit, and then sub in 4 new players for each team.
