DIRECTIONAL POSSESSION 5 VS 5+ 2 JOLLYS
A really good exercise to improve technical skills, the tactical structure and the cooperation between the players.
The exercise is carried out on a field as shown in the figure.
The directional possession includes two teams of 5 players each and two neutral players [Jollys] positioned along the side of the playing area in support of the team with the ball.
The objective of the exercise for the team with the ball is to send the ball in the end zone to connect with a teammate [modalities for this step to be defined by the coach] after having connected passes with the two lateral neutral players.
This approach trains the team with the ball to use the width of the field before verticalizing the play.
