Game-related possession game in the hexagon

Structure: The game is played in a hexagon divided into four zones. By means of the field form, vertical passes along the line are to be prevented. The field is 20 meters wide at its widest point and 35 meters long, depending on the level of skill of the players. The aim of the small-sided game is to make the ball circulate from one side to the other.

Rules: The game is played 5vs5+4, with the neutral players always being positioned in the smaller zones at the ends of the field and not being allowed to leave these zones. For the offensive team, both central zones must be occupied by at least two players.

Variation: It does not matter who occupies the end zones as long as two players from the team in possession of the ball do so. Dynamic swapping is allowed.

Coaching points: creating diagonal passing lines; occupying different horizontal and vertical lines to make quick changes of sides; creating depth – looking for the deepest positioned player.
