Number of teams – 2
Team sizes – 4v4 plus two extra players (one on each side who plays for the team in possession)

In a small area the movement is fast and the passes must be accurate. Two of the six play wide and play with the team in possession. It is always six with the ball and four trying to regain possession.

Focus on movement without the ball
One-two touch football
Receiving is important (1st touch)
