small sided activity (25 mins)

Organization:

-The small sided activity takes place in approx 30 x 20..depending on ability and age..

-Teams play 3 v 2 or 4 v 2 in each half of their field...the overload will depend on the number of players you have at your session or the level of difficulty you wish to impose....

-You can also incorporate neutral players along the touchlines....

-the objective is for players to make a predetermined number of passes in their half (eg. 5) to encourage possession and thereafter they can look to play to a teammate in the attacking half who looks to finish.

-The player who passes can join his teammates in the attacking half.

-goals scored from their own half are worth 3 points and goals in the attacking half are worth 1...

 Coaching Points:

-finishing key factors

-attacking principles of play

-always maintain good body shape when looking to maintain possession

-patience in build up...early assessment of space...head on a swivel taking snap shots!

-continuous assessment of the picture and the appropriate time to penetrate.

possible progressions:

-touch limits

-decrease overload in defensive half or go numbers even.the goalkeeper will always make for a +1 overload.

-introduce the neutral players along touchline...

-closest player then joins his teammates in attacking half.

-goals coming off cross from neutrals worth 5 points...

-create your own!!! the list is endless..
