5v5+1 Rotation Possession (Long Pass)
Grid: 35 x 25 yards
This game is same as exercise #4 but with the added condition that all passes through the gates must be from behind the blue markers. Example: if the black team plays a penetrating ball through the red gate, it must be hit from behind the blue marker on their side of the field. This condition forces longer range passing and penetrating balls. Teams can play the ball anywhere on the field but in order to score it must first travel through either red gate from a pass behind the blue marker.
Coaching Tool: Using a marker to train longer range penetrating passing. Using two gates to force attacking play down channels.
