Session – Counter Attacking
Phase of Play: Transition in Attack – Regaining Possession – Counter attack and end product (Any thing under 6 passes or as long as opposition does not have equal numbers in and around the ball)
Main Principle: Forward Passes
- Change Attitude – Open the options and pass forward
- Score as soon possible – take advantage opponents lack of organisation
- If it is not possible to play forward we retain possession and build up pressure – links back to offensive organisation (Over 6 passes)
