3v3 Through Pass – Avoid Pressure Skill


2 teams
large grid (30yds x 40yds)
small grid (25yds x 35yds)
cones to mark off area



play 3v3 plus 2
teams score by connecting two passes before making a pass outside the small grid which is received by a teammate or neutral player
pass must be controlled before the ball leaves the large grid
players cannot wait in target area to receive the pass
one player from the defending team can follow to prevent the pass from being controlled
the receiver cannot make the run through the same gate as the pass
limit number of touches
adjust spacing depending on the age and ability of the group
