Set Up

In between the 2 mini goals place 2 cones, 10 yards apart. 2 players stand at each cone and play will start with them. In the final third, towards the main goal, start with 1 attacker and 1 defender. On the outside of the area (or the wings) have 2 defenders on each side numbered 1 – 4.

Instructions

Play starts with 1 ball at the feet of a player stood by a cone. He passes to his teammate on the opposite cone who takes a touch and plays into the striker. Both players from the cones join their teammate to make it a 3v1 situation. On the coach's call, 1 defender can join in to make a 3v2. For example if the coach shouts 3, then number 3 joins in. The aim is for the attackers to score. 1 Full Size goal at one end complete with GK. At the opposite end have a mini goal/target in each corner. If the defenders win the ball, they can score in the 2 mini goals or pass to the coach who stands between the 2.

Progression

Add more players making it an initial 4v1, then 2 defenders to make 4v3.
