Small Sided Game -4v4 (15 mins)

Organization:

30L x 25W grid with coned corners.

4v4 -with target players in opposite corner

We will have at least two of these going at the same time.

Instructions:

Combine passes in the middle to find the opportunity to pass the ball to the teammate/target player in the corner.

Each pass to the corner player is a goal.

Players cannot attack the same corner twice in a row -only if the opposite team steals the ball, then either corner becomes "active."

Coaching Points:

Passing player playing to back foot (pressure is loose as the ball is played)

Taking touch inside and out of feet to play away from the pressure

Distance of touch (allowing head to come up and look forward)

Progressions:

Let corner player take touch in and be replaced by passing player.

Make it a tournament like. The winner plays the winner in the other field. 4min games.
