Possession 4v4 (35 mins)

Description

set up as before

Add nets for realism to the game

Only allow each team to have 2 defenders in their own half when defending, this will help with success initially!

However, start this game as multi-directional and the players can now make decisions on which goal to attack. They can begin a counter attack on the opposite goal if one is well defended.

This will aid success and also improve decision making and counter attacking.

The game is played now as SSG or possession game with an end product.

Progress to directional play and add offside lines. (as above)
