In a grid of approximately 15m x 15m with a halfway line and three gates of 5m at each byline.

Two groups (yellow and red) of 4 players positioned opposite one another in the middle gate.

Yellow group with a ball each; red without a ball.

#1 yellow passes to #1 red and immediately sprints to the halfway line (yellow must start defending on or over the halfway line, waiting in own half is not allowed).

Red #1 receives the ball and takes on yellow #1 at speed, trying to get past them and score by dribbling through the left or right gate.

The action stops when red scores or yellow wins the ball

Red #1 now takes the ball and joins the yellow line while yellow #1 joins the red line

After everyone’s had a turn, the red now become the defenders and yellow the attackers

“Count the number of goals: who scored most?”

A grid of 40m x 30m. divided in 2 grids of 20m x 30m by a halfway line of 4 flags (see diagram). Two small (2m) goals on each byline and a 5m-7m shooting line at each end.

Two teams of 4 players each. The game starts in grid A with the red team in possession and one yellow defender (4 v 1). The 3 other yellow players position themselves as shown (one between the goals and the other 2 at the shooting line cones).

The red team must get a player running with the ball across the halfway line into grid B and score in one of the goals (inside the scoring zone).

At the moment the red player crosses the halfway line one of the yellow players enters the grid to attack the red player (1 v 1).

Which defender commits depends on the ‘gate’ through which the attacker enters grid B (see diagram - in this instance, middle gate is active).

• If red scores: restart in grid A

• If the yellow defender captures the ball in grid B: restart in grid B with yellow in possession.

• If the defender wins the ball in the 4 v 1, they can score immediately in 1 of the 2 goals (from any distance).

20 x 30 yard grid or sized age appropiate

players paired up and each group has one ball.

pug or mini goal on each end line

players work 1 v 1 with their opponent trying to score in the mini or pug goal.

all players play on the same field and must be aware of their not only their partner but other groups playing at the same time.

must have head up, aware

players with better field vision will tend to be more sucessful.

watch for trends, defenders score few goals but let up few; attackers score lots and give up lots.

have winners play each other and do a playoff where players with simular win/loss play each other with first to select number wins.

## Skill Intro 1v1 (10 mins)

Positioned inside a large grid of approximately 40m x 40m are a number of 5m x 5m x 5m triangular grids. The players are split into 2 groups (red and yellow) of equal numbers, orange with ball and yellow without.

The number of triangular grids equals the number of players per group. Of the group without the ball, each player must stand inside a triangular grid

(see diagram).

The red players dribble around the area and ‘attack’ the triangles from any possible side. Only one player can attack a triangle at the same time (awareness; communication).

The yellow players have to ‘defend’ the borders of their triangles (passively at the beginning).

Change roles of groups regularly

“Make feints” (free choice or prescribed)

“Now only use your weaker foot”

“Now increase the tempo but avoid collisions” (“heads up”)

“Defenders, gradually raise the resistance”

“Defenders now full resistance, try to stop the attackers entering your grid”
