3-5-2 Possession Focus (and in-possession shape ideas)

This is a session that I delivered with my University team last night. We have switched to a 3-5-2 so wanted to work on some shape work in possession. The first part of the session was SSG based with end zones but a focus on moving the ball quickly in overloaded situations. This then moved into the game as you see below.

Adapt the progressions and challenges to suit your players.

This session was based on 22 players (we had 27 in total so the extra 5 played 3v2 games off-pitch and rotated frequently).
