3v3 Plus 3

This drill focuses on keeping possession, passing, receiving, movement, and angle of support, and awareness of surrounding players.


Drill Setup
  1. Start with building a 20x20 grid. 
  2. Create 3 teams of 3. 
  3. Each team should be a different color (one team yellow, red, and white).
Drill Instructions
  1. Instruct the yellow team to be defense first. 
  2. The other two groups, red and white, are responsible for keeping possession among the 2 groups.
  3. If the defending team (yellow) wins the ball, the team who made a mistake becomes the defending team. For Example, if red has a bad first touch into the defender (yellow), then the red team would become defense, and the yellow and white teams keep possession from the red team. 
  4. Any ball played out of the grid is considered a loss of possession by that group, and that group should become defense.
