SII Small Sided Activity 3v3 Counters (20 mins)

Stage II Small Sided Activity "3v3, Numbers Behind the Ball"

-3v3 on a 30 x 18 yard field

-Place small goals at the end of the field with a agility pole 3 yards behind each goal.

-When the team scores a goal, the player that scored has to run around the flag before coming back onto the field

-A player from the team that conceded gets a ball and quickly creates a 3v2 counter attack.

-Next two groups of three are waiting. Change every 2 goals or 2 minutes

Coaching Points:

-If immediate pressure can be applied (bad first touch, bad pass) then stop the counter attack early.

-Can we win the ball immediately?

-If not, recover back quickly to get players behind the ball, defending the central areas and force wide

-Player recover back does so by getting to the balancing side of the defensive line.
