Cross-Field Speed ‘Em Up

  • Setup a cross-field scrimmage with 2A, 2D, 2M, 1G on the field for each team
  • Get rid of one of the goals
  • The team that is defending the end with no goal:
    • The goalie has to stay in the crease except for clears and also can double off of end line restarts
    • They have a 10-second shot clock once they get the ball in their offensive zone (can adjust the shot clock time depending on the skill level of your team)
    • They get a point for scoring a goal
  • The team that is defending the end with the goal:
    • They get a point for a 30-second possession on their offensive half of the field (can adjust the time depending on the skill level of your team)
  • Face-off to start and after each point
  • All out of bounds played like a normal game
  • Substitutions played like a normal game
  • The is game allows you to practice two contrasting styles against each other (pressure/transition vs ball possession)

    1. That team gets a point for a 30-second possession (shorter or longer depending on the skill level of the team), they don’t shoot. So once they get the needed length of possession, the coach blows the whistle, gives them a point, and you face-off. It is defenses job on that side of the field to pressure the offense and not let them possess the ball, it is the offenses job to break pressure.
