Skill Game 1 v 1 (20 mins)

3 v 3 on a pitch (20m wide x 40m long) with big goals and goalkeepers.

Placed on the halfway line are 3 equal sized ‘gates’ as shown in the diagram. Each player (red or yellow) must defend their ‘own’ designated gate when the opponent has the ball (i.e. player #1 defends gate 1, player #2 defends gate 2 etc).

The green goalkeeper starts the game with all outfield players of both teams in grid A. The red team combines till one red player beats their opponent 1 v 1 and moves through one of the gates into grid B and tries to score.

If red scores the game starts again in grid A.

If yellow wins the ball in grid A they can immediately score. If yellow scores, the game restarts in grid B with possession for yellow.

If the blue goalkeeper wins the ball in grid B, the game restarts in grid B with possession for the yellow team.

Step up:

• The attacking team must make a 1 v 1 effort within 30 seconds otherwise the possession goes to the opponent.

• Narrow the pitch (smaller gates)

Step down:

• Introduce a ‘joker’

• Widen the pitch (bigger gates)
