SSG (30 mins)

SSG to practice possession of the ball in key areas. 

Organisation:

Set up the pitch 40m x 30m with a mini goal at each end.

Objective:

The aim is for each team to firstly keep possession of the ball from the other team in their own half of the pitch. If the attacking team gain possession, they must retreat to their own half and try and retain possession.

After a short while, revert to normal rules 4 v 4 with the goals.

Following this, the aim is to retain possession of the ball in the attacking half and not score any goals. The aim is to keep the ball. If the opposition get the ball, they must enter their attacking half of the pitch and the roles reverse.

Finish the SSG with a normal 4 v 4.

This SSG is designed for players to become used to retain possession and become confident in passing the ball from a defensive position. It is also an aid to learn to retain possession in the scoring area and keep the ball until a scoring opportunity is obtained.
