3v3 to goals (15 mins)

Setup: 3 grids of 20yd x 30yd

3v3 in grids. To score, stop the ball on the opposing line.

Go over zonal defending so that the defending team understands they should not cross over themselves; there should be a constant movement of up and back, sliding, along with communication amongst the three players. Help players see the picture of P-C-B line of defense and assist how to deal with an overlap by the attack; think of defending as one solid unit, communicating, moving, and adjusting together.

6v6 with 4 goals (20 mins)

Setup: 30x55 grid (wider than long); 3 teams of 6 setup as shown (one team rests); 4-2 formation

Intervals:

5 min game + 2 min rest x 2 reps = 14 minutes

6v6 in a wide, short field. Each team has four small goals to defend and consequently, four goals to attack (goals are 2-yard gates; score with a pass on the ground through any of the four goals).

The formation for each team is a 4-2 to illustrate P-C-B-C shape and to emphasize P-C v-shaped defensive pods around the field when defending. Begin with the ball on the ground, then allow balls in the air. Limit touches to increase speed of play (and consequently, improve speed of “read and react” defensive adjustments). Players should anticipate and be proactive in getting into good positions to defend effectively.

Coaching points:

~ 3 second rule: try to win ball back immediately, otherwise delay and recover behind ball
