Keeping possession is much easier when all players are moving into space so there are options for the player on the ball to pass it

Possession of the ball means players must be moving into space to create passing options for team mates. Often the simple pass is the one that keeps possession.
Set up an area 30 x 10 yards including 5 yard safety zones at each end.
In the 6v3 the 6 players are holding onto the ball while the three players are pressing trying to win the ball. The idea is to work the ball from one safety zone to the other
The passing team cannot be tackled in the safety areas but when the ball is played out of the safety areas the receiver cannot pass it back so they turn or dribble the ball into areas where they can pass the ball. The aim is to get the ball to the other safety zone to score a point.
The defending team wins a point by winning the ball and dribbling it into one of the safety zones.
Passing must be precise and quick, using the inside of the foot, to beat the pressing defenders.
Players must look for space and move into it to create more passing options.
Make possession players one-touch to make it harder to keep the ball or make the area big to make it easier to keep the ball.
