  1. Create a 20X20 grid. The size can vary depending on age and skill level of your team.
  2. You will need 8 players per grid split equally into teams of 4 players.
  3. 2 players from each team should align themselves diagonally across the field from each other at two of the corners (outside the grid).
  4. The remaining players play 2v2 inside the grid.


  1. Players play 2v2 in the middle of the grid and attempt to play one of their outlet players on their team.
  2. Once a pass is made to the outside player the players switch, so the outside players dribbles or passes in to their teammate and plays 2v2. The player passing to the outside player takes his spot and becomes the target player at his cone.
  3. The new attacker play 2v2 in attempt to combine with their teammate at the other corner. If corner is denied by the defending players, the team should play to their most open diagonal player in attempt to keep possession of the ball.
  4. If the defensive team wins the ball they become the attackers and attempt to keep possession as described above.
