  • Organisation

    • 6 cones

    • mark two 10 x 10 meter sized fields next to one another (can also be a hexagon as shown in the graphic)

    • a 6+1 vs. 2 defenders will be played in both fields

  • Process

    Players will play a 6+1 possession game against 2 defenders.

    The players in possession will furthermore complete as many passes as possible amongst each other, without the defenders touching or winning the ball.

    If this happens though, the player that lost the ball will turn into a defender.

    The player that has been in the middle for a longer period of time will become part of the players in possession of the ball.

    One player will position himself in the center to create passing angles.
