SMALL SIDED GAME

Four goal game.

Whites challenge is to simply score passed the 2 red defendng goals an reds the same target against the whites defending goals.

Encourage players to dribble at every opportunity possible and do not encourage consistant passing in the game.

If 4v4 not getting success can play 5v3 to one side giving them the overload to allow sucess and more dribbling passed an opponent opportunities.

CHALLENGES

Before scoring a player has to dribble passed an opponent

Players can score in all 4 goals. Team who scores in a goal retains possession but can not score in that goal straight after.

SMALL SIDED GAME

LINE BALL

With one group playing 4v4 goal game, second group should be playing line ball.

20x20 yard area with 2 5x20 yard areas.

Players aim is to simply dribble the ball into the opponents red coned zone which will count as a goal. Once goal is scored opposite side gain possession to attack again.

CHALLENGES

If dominating the 1v1 isn't coming out enough here are some team and player challenges to affect the game:

TEAM -

After every pass make a forward run

No passing - Every player must attempt to go it alone and dribble into zone.

INDIVIDUAL:

Can players turn without touching the ball or one just one single touch.

Spacial awareness on tight pitch so important. Players encouraged to get into most space possible and should always demanding and wanting the ball from other players. Again being encouraged to play without fear.
