@Nelson HandelI had a similar problem one year. I gave them a bit longer on ct and made it competitive, even 5v5 for 2 minutes was better than anything else by far.
What I found was they came back mentally ready, game mode fully switched on, thinking about both offense & defense. I think they just needed that helping changing mental gears. It made a huge difference for us.
I’m sure there are far savvier & more knowledgeable coaches who can offer more, but it worked wonders for us and I’ve used it with every team since (pre-game too). I’ll be interested to see what sage advice you receive!
