Using half of a field, move the goal to the midfield line facing a goal on the end line. using 4-5 cones on each side, create a 10-yard wide channel along each touchline. Two teams of 4 will play in the middle. Each team has one player in the channel, and the goals should have a goalkeeper in both nets. One team will start with the ball, and the remaining balls should be placed behind the goal.
Instruct the players to play 4v4 in the middle area and 1v1 on the flanks in either channel.
The ball must be served from a channel to score a goal.
When the ball is in the channel, the channel players should play 1v1 until one of the player’s breaks into the offensive end of the channel. At this point, the defender should allow the cross. The four middle players become near post, far post, trail and supporting runs. Play is continued.
