  • Split the team into 6 attackers, 6 defenders, a goalkeeper and a server.
  • The server will start around midfield with a supply of balls.
  • Mark off a lane from each sideline that is 15 yards wide.
  • Place a left winger in the left lane and a right winger in the right lane.
  • Place 1 defender in each of the two lanes so the wingers play a 1v1 on each side.
  • The remaining players (4v4) should be positioned in between the two lanes.


  1. The outside fullbacks are the only players that are allowed in the lane.
  2. The server plays the ball into one of the two outside wingers to begin the game.
  3. Instruct the outside fullback to let the winger turn before he applies pressure to the winger.
  4. The winger will then play 1v1 against the outside back. the winger's job is to beat the fullback down the line.
