Training Exercise - Hexagon Possession 8:8+4



๐ŸŽฅ Training Exercise - Hexagon Possession 8:8+4


๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿซ Hexagon possession exercise to improve positional understanding when in possession of the ball. The team in possession (white) must occupy the grid as shown above. When the ball is played to one of the outside players, they have one touch to connect with another player and inter-change positions.


In defense, press the ball by setting pressing traps and keeping a compact web shape.


When a transition occurs, the teams quickly switch roles and positional occupation of the grid. Counterpressing is also key in order to not permit the other team to re-position themselves.
