2v1 Numbers Game

A coach calls two numbers which will activate the players who start play, the coach distributes the ball and the 2 v1 begins

*players are numbered from 1-4

*blues are defenders

*reds are attackers

The coach plays the ball to the reds advantage and blue has to defend - generally reds should be able to score and end the play, coach restarts next play however.... if blue wins possession of the ball, he can attack reds goal or shoot from where possession is won.

General Game Principle for today is Defending

The 2 coaching points to focus on are:

1. keeping the ball in front of you

2. regaining (winning back) the ball and attacking the opponents goal as quickly as possible

5 minutes of juggling when players arrive (after they greet the Coaches)

Warm-up 5-10 minutes of ABC work

10-15 minutes of passing (gates set up)

Small-Sided Game (SSG) - 2v1 Numbers Game

Free-Play 15-20 minutes
