The equipment is placed on the field as indicated in image number 1.
The players are positioned on the field as indicated in image number 2.
When the instructor blows the whistle, the referee and the assistant referee begin to perform the exercise as indicated in the numerical sequence.
When the referee crosses the halfway line, the instructor makes another signal with the whistle for the players to start the action.
A player makes a long pass to any of the three pairs of players at the edge of the penalty area. One of the players challenging for the ball commits a foul outside or inside the penalty area.
Once the action is finished, the referee and the assistant referee cool down for the indicated time and perform the same exercise in the opposite direction.
The work with the assistant referees is carried out on both sides of the field and starts simultaneously, but only the assistant referee concerned takes part in the technical decisions.
The referee starts the exercise from cone nº 1 with a forward run (10 m) to agility pole nº 1, leaving it to his right, followed by a slalom run between five agility poles placed 2m from each other. He continues with a slalom run between four cones placed 2m from each other, and ends with a forward run, passing between the two cones on the halfway line towards the decision-making area.
The referee moves as quickly as possible towards the area where the action takes place and makes the pertinent technical decisions.
The referee, on his way to finding a good position, changes and narrows his focus of attention to solve the task presented to him by the instructor. Then, he widens his focus of attention to gather information concerning the game action.
The assistant referee starts the exercise from cone nº 1 (5m from the halfway line) with a forward run (5 m) to agility pole nº 1, followed by a slalom run between five agility poles placed 2m from each other. He continues with a forward side run (5 m) to cone nº 3 and finishes with a forward side run to the decision-making area.
The assistant referee helps the referee to decide whether there has been a foul and, if so, whether it took place inside or outside the penalty area.
When the referee is going between the cones on the halfway line, an attacking player situated near the halfway line makes a long pass to the edge of the penalty area closest to the assistant referee, where 3 attackers and 3 defenders challenge for the ball.
In the other half of the field the 3 attackers and 3 defenders are positioned on the edge of the penalty area furthest from the assistant referee.
In both situations one player commits an offence inside or outside the penalty area.
The instructor blows the whistle at 30 second intervals, coordinates the groups taking part in the exercise and controls the execution of the exercise technique.
The instructor positions himself outside the field of play, where he can see all the players. From this position, the instructor makes the relevant observations.
The instructor positions himself in the referee’s running line and shows a card. Depending on the colour of the card, the referee moves to the right of the instructor (yellow) or to the left of the instructor (red).
