Two Team Keep Away

96 0

Field size: 40 yards by 30 yards

Number of players: eight players; if you have a full team, then setup two grids working at the same time.

Age range: 14-16

Description: Split a square up into two grids with four players in each grid, red team in one grid and then blues in the other.  One team starts with the ball and tries to keep the ball away from two defenders, which are sent over by the team in the other grid.  If the defenders win the ball, they move back to their grid and two players from the other team become defenders and run into the grid to try to win the ball. Rotate the two defenders who are working with each round.

To keep the game moving quickly, and not have players standing around, have players play one and two touch and narrow the size of the grids if they game is too easy for some players. Also, try to have the players shoot for a certain number of consecutive passes, say ten to start.
