Four box game

Organization:

35x35 square. 4v4+2. 5yd boxes marked out in each corner.

Instructions:

The objective is to work the ball into a box for a point. Once you have scored in a box you must move to a new box. The game is live the whole time, no stoppages after a score.

(1) You score by dribbling into the box. (This is a more suitable starting point for younger ages.)

(2) P - First touch has to take you out of the box.

(3) P - Two players have to take a touch in the box. (This should encourage quick one-twos in the corners.)

(4) P - Balls in the air. Use blue cones to add a 3yd "lava zone" around each box. Balls can't touch down in the lava zone on their way into the box, a pass must be made in the air. (Balls can touch the lava zone on their way out of the box so that receivers can play to ground.)

Coaching Points:

(1)

Balls into space vs to feet

Runs in behind

(2)

Open body shape

Receive on back foot

Positive first touch

(3)

Look for the quick one-two

Timing of support runs

(4)
