7v7 Full Field

3-2-1

This set up will allow an overload to build it out of the back from the GK or goal kick. This set up will also allow of space for the outside backs to get forward in support to help create overloads in Midfield and Forward lines.

Depending of what defending team does when defending. Midfield players should drop in to help create the overload in the back if attackers press the backs. The defenders can be coach directed in how he wants them to play (Good opportunity to work on pressing too). This will allow offensive team to have to deal with multiple situations and have to make decisions according to the situtation.

Coaching Points:

If 1 or 2 defenders press the backs, then midfielders can stay in their area and try and find openings to receive the ball. We will have a 4v2 (3 Backs + GK)

If 3 or more defenders press the backs, then 1 or 2 (depends on numbers) midfielders will need to drop in to support and create an overload. (6v3 possibly)

Forwards must be active to find the ball because they could have plenty of space to get the ball. Depending on the situation they could be on same side as the ball or they can "hide" on the opposite side hoping for quick switch of play to catch the defense out of position.

Play must be quick to get the ball into midfield area.

Players play quicker by: Good first touch into plenty of space, Awareneness and Vision by always scanning the field (Check their shoulder), quick and proper movement to open themselves up for a pass, Communication and a lot of it.
