3v3 Mini Games (20 mins)

3v3 Mini Games

Ideal end game for when fewer plyers are available or progression from overload & finishing practices before moving onto a proper 5v5 SSG. Coach to have lots of balls to keep play moving and feed into players when ball out of play and they are in some good space. If more than 6 players, set up two game so 12 players or if 9 players have three teams and play for 3-4 mins per game. Can introduce a floater or magic player if odd numbers.

Lots of different progression can be undertaken week by week to change the focus of the practice to offer different challenges, thought proccesses or desired outcomes to practices dribbling, RWB etc etc to link the end game to the theme of the session.

Using 3 players, keen to enhance triangular pass and move football, speed of play in the final third area, creative play when possible and utlisie 1v1 skills in the right area to exploit space and ultimiately score!

Rules - ball must not be over head height, all players must touch ball before scoring

In the above layout, progressions are:

P1 - make at least 5 or 10 passes before scoring

P2 - one player must stay in home zone be that 1 or 3 depending on what team you are

P3 - must score with first touch

P4 - must dribble into end zone to score a goal

P5 - must pass to a player standing in the end zone to score (encourages good counter attacks)

P8 - one player must be in the attacking zone at all times, defenders cannot join him until the ball is touched by him BUT striker in this zone cannot score (must pass before scoring)
