Warm-up (15 mins)

Ball gets played from the blues into the yellows who are working as goalkeepers

-after yellow received the ball they must roll the ball back to the blues

-Swap after 1-2 minutes

-Allows one team to focus on catching and another team to focus on proper passing

Progression: pass to the side and force a diving save (hands first and focus on keeping shoulders facing field, a poor dive would have stomach facing the ground)

Small-Sided Game (25 mins)

I would start by assigning each player a number. Every couple of minutes, call out a new number and that number goes in goal.

continuous, 2v1 players play 2v1

As soon as the ball goes out of play, two new attackers are used (Do not have to have players in multiple colors, done to see who is defending and who is attacking)

Advanced Small Sided Game

Same as before, players still have their numbers or can assign players new numbers. Game is now directional,

4v2

introduces elements of transition.

Play ends with a shot, 4v2 when shot happens, goalkeeper looks to play the ball out of the back to go forward, two players must work back to defend to create another 4v2.

we artificially create the numbers up situation to create more shots on goal for the goalkeeper and to make the defender work in transition

Game (20 mins)

4v4

Narrow field to encourage shooting on goal.

Can focus on many things: Team shape, shooting technique, but most of all goalkeeping.

Potential progression: 2 touch only, if you take more than two touches, must try to score a goal.
