Change Soccer

In this version of micro soccer 3 players (4 for U6) are on the field. The remaining players are in the goal.

The players in the goal can kick the ball to prevent a goal but cannot pick the ball up with their hands.

The Coach calls “change” and the players on the field race for their own goal while the players in the goal run out to play.

Call change at different time intervals to keep the player’s interest peaked. Sometimes change after 2 minutes sometimes change after 30 seconds. This keeps the players focused on the task at hand.
