STP SSG

Instructions

Using half the field with two wide unopposed areas, SSG on switching the play.

Both teams playing a 1-2-2-2 without the ball and a 1-4-4-2 with the ball to emphasise necessity to play wide.

Neutral wide players are on the team of whoever passes them the ball, goals can only be scored after ball has been transferred wide in the move.

Using previous points, look to recognise when, where and why we play wide.

Progressions

Remove neutral players from wide areas, make wide areas 1v1 Blue V Red.

For more game realistic shape, only team in possession can use wide areas.

-Later introduce time or touch limit in wide area.
