Lax Coach Mike: Drills with 'Add One' to Simulate Back Cuts

Variations

1. Obviously we could make go 2v2 with an "add one" and work on picks and slips in the two-man game before we add a player to the offense.

2. We could also have a fourth line of defenders and then "add one" offensive back cut player and a few seconds later add a defensive player, thus 3v3 to 4v3 to 4v4 ... and play it out.

3. We could make it a 4v4 to a 5v4, or a 5v5 to a 6v5. Use your imagination, but as a 3v3 to 4v3, the field is open, and it is easier, especially for younger or less skilled players, to recognize the transition situation.

I hope you share your thoughts.
