4 vs. 4 + 2 (30 mins)

Organization:

4 vs 4 + 2 with goalkeepers in a 30 x 25-yd area. The possession team includes the 4 outside players, the two inside players and two goalkeepers--a total of eight players on the posession team.

Activity:

The four inside players must first defend and win the ball and then attack at either goal, playing 4 vs. 2. The team of eight is playing possession, and the team of four is playing to score goals.

Coaching Points:

Possession team:

Play two-touch and keep the ball moving quickly with constant changing of direction. The inside players may play one-touch. Great execise for the keeper as a field player. The two inside players will become defenders when the ball changes over.

Inside team:

Defend in a diamond shape and stay compact. Work hard and communicate-the reward is to attack either goal once the ball is won.
