4v4 to Small Goals (15 mins)

Organization: 4v4 (30 x 40 yd area) No goalkeepers. Play for 10 minutes, then water-break.

Coaching Points: Challenge players to apply the pressure we worked on in the session. Winning the ball back and disrupting the play.

Out of Bounds - Side Line: If the ball goes out of bounds, shout Red Light to keep players from chasing it. Place the soccer ball on the side line and allow the player to kick it on to the field to a teammate.

Out of Bounds - End Line: If the ball goes out of bounds, shout Red Light to keep players from chasing it. All players on the opposing team must regroup at the mid-field line. This is a new rule for 4v4 play to help encourage players to pass out of the back. First pass is free.
