Numbers:

6 v 6 (plus goalkeepers). In addition, four side players – two ‘jokers’ recruited from each team.

Area:

Double penalty box.

Rules:

– The four jokers always play with the team in possession and they are restricted to one touch.

– The field players when in possession can use the jokers and one of the following conditions will apply: a) free play, b) two touch, c) one touch.

– The four jokers are changed every 3 minutes (two from each team) – a one-minute break is permitted for the change-over.

– Each player has 3 x 3 minutes on the pitch and 3 minutes as a joker.

– Repeat the process, if required, depending on the training goals.

Coaching Points:

– Fast interceptions and quick counter-attacks, when possible.

– Immediate pressing of the ball when possession is lost.

– Work on combination play and angles to receive the ball.
