4v4-half way line (25 mins)

In a 4v4 or 5v5 setting, split the teams up evenly and have 2 oversize goals with each team attacking and defending one with no goalkeeper. Split the field down the middle with a half way line. Each time the attacking team scores in the attacking half count it as 1 goal. Every time the attacking player uses the driven ball technique to score from his own defensive half count it as 3 points.

Coaching Points:

- Driven ball technique

- Decision Making [ Was this the right time to use the driven ball or are we just kicking it?]
