1. Shooting

Area: 30x30 divided in half with goal and GK at each end. Two teams of 4 with 3  in one half vs. 1 attacker. Teams look to combine from GK in a 3 vs. 1 to shoot from within own half. Player in attacking half follows up for rebounds.

1.Play starts with the goal-keeper.

2. The yellows keep the ball away from the red player and when the opportunity comes to shoot, they take the shot.

3. When a shot is taken from a team, their team mate in the opposite area follows in the shot in case the GK drops it.

4.You can play this with a floating player that plays in with the team in possession. You can also play 4v2 if you have more players.
