Create a grid that is 30X40 yards. Divide in to two teams of 5 field players and 1 goalkeeper. Create a goal on each goal line, or use two Pugg Goals on each end line.


Players play a 5v5 game with the restriction that the attacking player with the ball must first beat a defender before he can pass or shoot. This restriction will encourage attackers to dribble and take on defenders.
