- Goalkeeper in each end zone.
- 2 defenders positioned on edge of both end zones, as well as one opposing centre-forward.
- 3 v 3 free to move to find space in central zone with wings shut off.
- One of central defenders drops into box to receive from goalkeeper and feed teammate in central zone to start move.
- Team in possession aims to progress into opponents end zone before shooting on goal.
- Progression into end zone can come in different forms. Namely: a through ball from a midfielder for the centre-forward to run onto, a one-two between a midfielder and centre-forward to receive in behind, a 3rd man run involving two midfielders and centre-forward.
- Attacking movement to find space and lines of pass. Defending players angle of approach and cover shadows to prevent forward passes.
- Staggered structures to facilitate one and two touch progressions through congested areas.
- Encourage diagonal passing unless the receiver is being used as a ‘wall player’ for lay-offs/up-back-throughs.
- Timing of runs in behind to prevent offsides, blindsides, out to in etc.
