Learning Objectives

Two teams. Each team plays 3 v 3 at any one time.

Players are encouraged to shoot at every available opportunity. If a shot is saved by the GK, play continues. If a goal is scored the defending team go off and a new team come on to attack.

If a shot goes over the end line (even if it misses the target) the defending team goes off and their team mates launch a new attack from behind the goal. The team that had just had the shot then has to react and quickly think defensively to stop the team advancing up the field and scoring.

Teams waiting to come on are encouraged to attack quickly whilst the opposition are disorganised.
