Switching Play

Organisation

18yd to 18yd area with a goal at each end.

8v8 + 2 GKs.

Channels marked out on either side of the pitch.

Set up formations of both teams as 4-2-1-1.

Rules / Objectives

The two full-backs provide the width for both teams. Only these full-backs are allowed in the channels.

Emphasise the importance of width.

Play starts with the GK.

Ball has to be played from one channel over to the next before the team in possession can score.

Progressions

1) Limit the number of touches to improve the tempo of play.

2) Remove the channels but maintain the condition of the ball having to be played from one side of the pitch to the other before scoring - more realistic game situation.
