Guided Discovery Session

Organisation:

-Area 20x30

-Two Teams of 4

-Gates Using Cones spread around the area

.

Aim:

-To score a goal, teams must make a successful pass through one of the gates to a teammate.

.

Rules:

-No limit on touches to start

-If ball goes out, play restarts from Coach

.

Progressions:

1 - Can't score in the same gate twice in a row, must find another gate.

2 - 6 passes also becomes a goal

3 - Play becomes 2-touch

.

Reasons for Progressions:

1 - Not being able to score in the same gate twice in a row will force the attacking team to make full use of the pitch and will encourage them to transfer the ball to other areas of the pitch.

2 - Making 6 passes also a goal stops the defending team from simply marking the gates and will force them to go and close down the attacking team, which in turn may help the attacking team to score.

3 - Making play 2-touch will force the attacking team to move off the ball to get in a position to help out their teammate who is in possession, rather than one player dribbling around the pitch and the others standing still by the gates.
