Description

Designed for U8 to U12 teams.  Fun session for the players and the games usually bring out the topic each time I run it.  The 2v2+2 game is and has been one of the most successful small sided games with teams I have coached from both a coaching standpoint and player enjoyment.  You can teach many different aspects of soccer in the 2v2+2 game.

Instructions: Players start on opposite sides of the row of cones, quickly dribble though their color of cones and pass to partner, then runs back around cones in anticipation of the next pass. Partner does same. Switch starting sides. Have players race their parnter to see if they can catch them to speed up play. On dribble, change every few minutes: both feet, right foot only, left foot only, outsides of feet only.

Coaching Points: Quality of touches on the dribble. Pace of play. Receiving 1st touch should take player through the 1st cone and next touch ensues as dribble. Last touch through the cones should set up pass. Weight & quality of passes.

Switch outside players to inside every game, so each team plays 2 games in a row.
